Alex Orr, Managing Director
Alex has been working in public affairs and PR from the womb, well since 1996 to be precise, and enjoys wearing tweed (not underpants!), on every occasion possible. His experience ranges from delivering Scotland’s first commercial gold mine, to working with clients in housing, utilities, health, energy and food and drink.
Alex Bruce, Director
Alex has always loved communications. In his time, he’s gone from being a student of foreign languages to a Brussels-based political adviser, spent time as a car lobbyist in London before a PR career beckoned him back to Scotland. His clients come from sectors ranging from technology to culture, from construction to education. But that’s all biding time until the tortured songwriting career takes off!
Graeme Downie, Director
Graeme has been working in public affairs and PR since 2003 and, having recently started having to wear glasses, has decided he finally has that intellectual look he always aspired to. Having gained experience in sectors from food & drink to innovation to transport, housing and health, Graeme is concerned that his three-year old daughter will forever be confused as to what her dad actually does all day!
Sally Trethewie, Account Director
Sally joined Orbit after nearly 10 years in sunny Singapore, where she worked in public affairs at an international communications agency and the Australian government. She has experience in multiple sectors including education, transport, insurance property, and food and beverage. Sally is very much at home in Scotland, as she is originally from a place also known for its whisky, salmon, wild landscapes and wild people: Tasmania.
Sarah Mooney, Account Manager
After gaining a degree in journalism and creative writing, Sarah worked in digital marketing in the public sector before making the jump to PR agency life. Since then she’s used her creative skills for clients across sectors from food & drink to charity to tourism, and not forgetting a number of Scottish Government campaigns. A comms professional by day but a thespian by night, you’ll find her backstage in the theatre, not yet ready to give up her dream of winning an Olivier award!
Roslyn Ivatt, Trainee Marketing Executive
After gaining her degree in Festival and Event Management with Entrepreneurship, Roslyn decided she would like to take the plunge into the PR and Comms world. After taking on various internships at Scottish agencies she was delighted to be given a role at Orbit, combining her events, marketing and PR skills. As an avid foodie, Roslyn can usually be found cooking, eating or enjoying a glass of Edinburgh Gin!
James Fullarton, All things digital and SEO
After completing his degree in Fine Art James worked in photography before moving into marketing. James comes to Orbit with over 10 years experience in marketing, Search Engine Optimisation, and social media. James is a keen skier, making his way once a year to a snowy hill top for a week of R&R. Rescued dogs, horses and a good lunch keep him in the geek zone. Our genius in disguise.
