Meet the Team

At Red Cow, we understand that great people make a great business; so we have built up a team of fantastic individuals who all excel in their respective fields, as well as being pretty cool personality-wise (if we do say so ourselves!). We think of our team members as family, because each one is a significant asset that we couldn't do without. Meet our family below:

Kelly White | Managing Director

Kelly White

Managing Director

Kelly started Red Cow Media based on her vision of what a search agency should be like. Tired of working in agencies where clients are an afterthought, and where campaigns are generic instead of aligned with business objectives, she set out to revolutionise the way Search Marketing is thought of and highlight it as a genuine marketing channel capable of generating an impressive ROI. Kelly comes from a search marketing background working in senior positions both agency-side and in-house for global companies. She has worked on international campaigns in various countries and languages across the full remit of search marketing services, including organic search (SEO), paid search, display advertising, social media and retargeting.
