Experience and achievements

Rebecca Peel

Managing Director

I am an experienced marketer within the branding and design industry. Over the past decade, I was responsible for developing the awards strategy to achieve both internal and external business objectives at Elmwood. Directing and overseeing the entry process, I was also responsible for creating and driving the awards calendar, and educating and inspiring the global team to victory. The achievement of which I am most proud is maintaining Elmwood’s top of the league position in the DBA’s Design Effectiveness Awards for nine years running – effectively allowing them to substantiate their positioning of ‘the world’s most effective design consultancy’. Something that was integral to their business success.

Awards won

I’ve been involved in writing and managing many successful entries over the years, ranging from the Food & Beverage Awards (FAB) to the Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business Awards. Most notably however in the brand design industry, with gold wins in the Transform Awards in Europe and the Grand Prix in Asia Pacific. And not forgetting 46 DBA Design Effectiveness Awards in the past decade.
