Morven Mackenzie

Meet Morven, our new MD!

With 24 years' experience leading agencies and communications teams, she's ready to take the helm here at Hampton to take us into new adventures. Not only can she lead a parade of 5,000 people she also makes a mean paella and isn't afraid to belt out some karaoke.

Scott Hunter, one of our founding members some 20 years ago, will remain as creative director, while Ewan Lyle will continue to head up our digital team.

Commenting on the new appointment, our business owner and now chairman, Skerry Read said: “The past two years have proven to be incredibly exciting for us as we’ve added to our service offering, grown our team and strengthened our client base throughout Scotland and beyond.

“Having seen Hampton through this period, it’s now the right time to pass the reigns over to Morven. She is a highly experienced communications professional and has the ideal track record for this leadership role.”

Morven said: “Skerry put in place an ambitious growth strategy for the business when she took it over two years ago and I look forward to building upon the great work already undertaken.

“We have such a talented and highly skilled team of specialists, and that, along with our great and diverse client base and an ever-changing industry, will make for a really exciting future.”

Originally from Orkney, Morven has Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in European Business Studies with Languages and has previously worked in agencies in both London and Aberdeen. Prior to joining us in 2017, she ran her own full-service communications agency.
