Meet the team at e marketing support ltd
Matt made an early start on his marketing career. Whilst studying Business & Marketing at Bournemouth University he first learnt how to code websites and market products and services. Putting these new skills to good use, Matt got involved in some projects for people he knew, and then some people they knew, and the rest, as they say, is history.
More than 10 years later, Matt still gets involved in the majority of the larger scale projects we work on. He is usually found in the studio, asking the team for “just one more change” or out meeting clients, working hard to drive their website and marketing projects forward.
Outside of work, he can be found doting on his two young daughters, watching DVD box sets with his wife Kizzy or Sky Sports News without her. He plays football, tries to play golf and thinks he can rock the guitar and drums!
Heather is our resident expert in the world of website development. She started to pick up codes in her teens and went on to study Computer Science at the University of Manchester where she earned a scholarship for academic attainment. Later, whilst continuing her studies at the University of Hertfordshire, she was awarded another scholarship, this time for User Interface Development.
Heather has a long list of intimidatingly clever systems under her development belt including content management, eCommerce, social media integration and tailored client automation. Heather is not ashamed to admit that she has a rather serious Sims obsession and runs a popular Sims community website in her spare time. She is also the proud owner of two very lovely golden retrievers.
What she lacks in coordination she more than makes up for with her carefully honed Zumba, jogging and netball skills, yet to be used all at the same time.
Client Services Director
A graduate of Film & Drama from Reading University, it was only natural that Katia started out her career working behind the scenes in television. Her passion for marketing soon took over and she has not looked back since! Experienced in marketing, corporate communications, PR and event management, Katia has worked both on client and agency sides in London, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Amman. She has represented many multinational brands across a number of industries such as retail, FMCG, gaming, telecoms, automotive and real estate.
Katia is multilingual and has an experience-driven understanding of strategy, brand and reputation management, which allows her to develop and manage effective communication strategies and messaging for clients. Her inquisitive nature when working with clients means she asks a lot of questions, but don’t worry, she’s just building up a marketing case in her head for you!
Away from work, she is hoping that one day she’ll stop using her son as the excuse for not revisiting her old passions and hobbies - Film, art, salsa and kickboxing. We’re still waiting…

Front End Developer
Imran is a key member of our web development team. He specialises in 'front end' development - basically the parts of a website that most people will actually see! Imran is very well qualified with a bachelors degree in Web Development and a Masters, no less, in Web Technologies - so he certainly knows his stuff!
Imran is also a talented graphic designer meaning he's able to create pixel perfect websites, that look great and that make use of fully responsive design. This ensures things work on all devices, including smart phones, tablets, PCs, Macs and so on.
In his spare time, he enjoys travelling, listening to music and playing computer games. He also likes to keep fit by going to the gym regularly - which is handy, because he has a real weakness for chocolate, which he says goes right to his waist!
