Vikki is an Associate Director working across the Public Affairs and Planning Teams, based out of our Southampton offices but working across the UK.
Having been leader of a large unitary council with a complex political make-up, she is able to bring considerable experience to our work with local authorities in terms of political engagement and the development of strategic communications, improved governance and partnership working. As a councillor, she is also able to bring particular skills to the planning team in bridging the communications gap between communities, political leaders and property professionals and is currently working for Cratus on a range of residential and commercial property projects.
Climate Change and renewable energy are a particular passion and Vikki is helping local authorities make the leap from declaring a climate emergency to implementing their plans to achieve carbon neutrality.
Vikki is now leader of the opposition in her council and prior to working for Cratus she had a career in the charity sector where she was responsible for fundraising and prospect research. She also worked in campaigns and communications for her Member of Parliament and was selected to fight three general elections herself, building a strong personal brand around community leadership.
