who we are

rachael clamp

With over 20 years in Marketing and Communications, Rachael started Ardesey with one aim - to work on what she wanted to work on, with - and for - people she clicked with and admired, whilst enjoying herself. It was whilst working for Dod’s that she found her niche in engaging with the public sector and was able to feed her lifelong interest in politics, government and lobbying. She brought this to her myriad roles in communications across areas such as defence at Northrop Grumman, Government and Public Sector at EY, to heading up global marketing for the Public Services and Defence for PA Consulting. In this sector, there aren’t many people that she doesn’t know.

Rachael has a love for Formula 1, peonies, and a perfectly chilled glass of white wine (preferably served in a warm location!).

our network

ben cole
content writer, pr, media handler

Starting his career at Northrop Grumman in the corporate communications function, Ben found an interest in technology that has brought him from strength to strength in his professional life. After NG and Rachael’s pupillage, Ben found himself at B2B technology agency Babel, delving into Telecoms, networking analytics, and cybersecurity. He is now the main content driver at Ardesey, bringing a keen eye for a story and a simple to the point writing style that has an element of classicism to it. He sells stories like nobody’s business, and can keep up with journalists - even at The Cheshire Cheese.

Ben spends his free time lifting heavy things repeatedly, doing ruck marches, and widening his knowledge of wines through physical experimentation.

nina johnson
designer, creater

Nina has been in the world of design before most of us could even spell design. She has seen it come, go and come back again, and has such a knowledge of design and graphics media that you wouldn’t know where to begin. Her enthusiasm and critical design eye ranges from invitations and corporate origami souvenirs, all the way to whitepaper design, and even choosing the right type of paper for your business cards. Legend has it that she can tell you what GSM your paper is by smell.

Nina loves dogs, daffodils, and a good gin on a Friday night.
