The reallymoving management team:


Rob Houghton
Chief Executive

Rob founded reallymoving in August 1999. He is mainly focused on business development and strategy. He is married with two sons, and is an enthusiastic, although sadly not particularly talented, musician, tennis & golf player.
Top moving tip: Label all boxes and furniture with the room they should be stored in at your new home.

She is a member of the Board, and advises on reallymoving’s partner panels and the general business strategy.  She is also a judge for a number of industry award.  Rosie is married with two sons, plays cello, and is often seen cycling the roads of Hertfordshire.
Top moving tip: Have a small penknife handy to open boxes quickly when you unpack.

Clare Exact
Company Secretary

Clare's duties include overseeing all aspects of finance and user testing. In her spare time she’s busy at her allotment. She aims to complete all 630 miles of the South West Coastal Path walk which, at her current rate of progress, will take at least 20 years!
Top moving tip: Save time and stress by paying the removals company to pack and unpack your belongings.

Andrew Settle
Head of Development & IT

Andrew heads up our development team. With a strong interest in developing user-centric experiences, Andrew is working on adding new features to the site and enhancing existing ones. He is married with two daughters.
Top moving tip: Visit your potential property at different times of day to get a sense of traffic, safety and atmosphere.

Louise Copland
Head of Marketing

Louise leads our busy marketing team. When not catching up on what’s new in the digital world, Louise is a keen skier and travels as much as she can. With a love of all things Spanish you’ll often find her in Barcelona when she has a spare weekend.
Top moving tip: Remember that you are not the estate agent's client, the seller is.

Chris Buckingham
Head of Sales

Chris oversees all our partner panels. He comes from a storage background where he specialised in training and nurturing sales teams. Chris is an overly keen, nearly-retired cricketer and golfer. He spends time with the two loves of his life, his family and watching Watford FC.
Top moving tip: Always create an inventory, and pack heavier items into smaller boxes so they can be carried with ease.

Jo McIntosh
Head of Finance and Operations

Jo is a chartered accountant, having qualified with Deloitte a very long time ago! She oversees various finance and operational matters in the office. When not at work, Jo is a full time taxi service for her two children, enjoys long hikes with friends and loves travelling overseas with her family.
Top moving tip: Make it easy on yourself and get a removals company instead of trying to move everything on your own.


The rest of the team:



Adeel Ahmed
Removal Sales Manager

If you are looking to join our panel of removals firms, Adeel will be able to help. In his spare time, he's passionate about cars, and has been known to arrive at the office on crutches after a particularly enthusiastic game of football.
Top moving tip: Ask lots of questions - knowledge is key!

Alistair Dann
SEO Executive

Alistair joined the marketing team as SEO executive in December 2019, moving from a testing position. In his free time he enjoys cooking, movies and does freelance video editing.
Top moving tip: Before moving, figure out how you’ll move your furniture, otherwise you may end up in a classic ‘Friends’ situation with a sofa that can’t fit up the stairs.

Alys Horsfall 
Junior User Experience 

Alys is part of the UX Design team at reallymoving and she joined after getting a degree in Interactive Media Design. Outside of the office she enjoys eating good food and visiting cities in Europe.
Top moving tip: Number the boxes in order of importance when you load them into the car/van so you know which ones to unpack first.

Andi Michael
Content Marketing Manager

Andi runs our team of excellent content writers, making sure we're helping everyone we can with our articles and guides. She also runs our paid social campaigns and does any other writer bits and bobs for the site. She is an enthusiastic (but terrible) snowboarder and writes mildly successful novels.
Top moving tip: Don't be pushed into using referred services - they're not automatically quicker or cheaper. Always ask around.

Brandon Abbew
Apprentice Web Developer

Brandon joined reallymoving, as an apprentice web developer, in December 2019. He has a degree in Music Technology, during which, he was first exposed to the wonder of coding. In his spare time, he enjoys playing and recording music, gaming, and will never turn down a match of tennis.
Top moving tip: Pack the kettle, tea, coffee, and sugar in last. A cuppa will be the first thing you want when you reach your new home!

Camillia Barton
Sales Manager, Surveyors

Camillia looks after our surveyors. She makes sure they’re happy, informs them of ways to optimise our services and how reallymoving can help them. She’s happiest being mindful and practicing yoga, or playing Call of Duty. 
Top moving tip: Don't understimate the importance of a list! You can check our checklist if you think you might have forgotten something.

Chris Jagusz
Senior Web Developer

Chris is a PHP Developer for The Law Superstore. He finds software development a useful distraction from the relentless nature of cider appreciation, England rugby matches and the predictably dramatic life of an internationally acclaimed ski destructor.
Top moving tip: Treat your removals team to fish and chips for lunch! You'll have a very happy team!

Fari Mabvudza
Senior Web Developer

Fari assists with developing and maintaining our site. He has a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Computer Science and when away from the office, he is addicted to watching football, enjoys reading, and spends time with friends and family.
Top moving tip: Don't underestimate the time needed to pack everything - all the little bits and pieces quickly add up!

Legal Sales Manager

Graham is our Legal Sales Manager. He has an extensive background in sales and property and loves nothing more than extolling the virtues of our services to new partners. Married with two football-mad boys, he can be found shouting on a touchline most weekends or chasing the elusive PB on his Saturday morning Park Run.
Top moving tip: Get your timings right on moving day. Stay in touch with your agent and solicitor to avoid unnecessary waiting around.

James Hatch
Sales Manager, Removals

James has an extensive sales background and prides himself on understanding his partners' needs to help them thrive using reallymoving. When James isn’t stressing over his beloved Chelsea he enjoys a kickabout with his friends and loves to dance!

Top moving tip: Bring a small bag with you with essential items – toilet paper and soap should always be in there!

Lola Jimilehin
Software Tester

Lola joined reallymoving as a software tester. Lola has a very keen eye for detail and collaborates with the development team to test the new features with other members of the testing team. In her spare time she loves walking and watching Netflix.
Top moving tip: Invest in quality moving boxes, the last thing you want is boxes falling apart whilst you're moving.

Marianne Jordan
Accounts Assistant

Marianne helps with the day to day accounting at Reallymoving. She is also our resident eco-warrior and spends her spare time encouraging everyone she knows to reduce their plastic consumption and to measure their carbon footprint.
Top moving tip: Your move can be eco-friendly too - have a look at our eco-friendly move guide.

Nick Rose
Front End and Design Manager

Nick assists with developing and maintaining the website. He is excited about improving and adding new features to help both customers and the business get the best results. He has a BEng in Electronic Engineering and when away from the office enjoys keeping fit at the gym, cycling, the odd cocktail or four and watching all 397 episodes of Dallas again if he ever gets the time.
Top moving tip: Always overestimate removals costs, and be sure to ask how much extra services (disassembling etc) cost in advance.

Rafe Wilson
Web Developer

Rafe is a keen competitive gamer of Dota 2 where he is the captain of an amateur team and hosts amateur tournaments. He is a Chelsea fan, and can often be found on a tennis court.
Top moving tip: If you're the first person into a new home, check whether it's wired up for TV/Broadband and what else it might be missing.

Rostum Ahady
Apprentice Web Developer

Ros initially started coding in his free time and was sold on becoming a developer when his computer replied, “Hello World”. He’s always up for a challenge and strongly believes that there’s always something more to learn. When he’s not solving problems, he unwinds by gaming, cooking and pondering the big questions of the world. Things like world peace and whether it’s ok to eat a third brownie today.
Top moving tip: Think about your tummy on your moving day! No one wants to be cranky on a day like that.

Sam Clift
Test Manager

Sam has an extensive background in the removals industry. In her current role as Test Manager, Sam works with the Development and Testing teams to test new features and updates to the website. Sam is happy to answer any questions  about our lead generation system or the industry in general.
Top moving tip: Always have the removals company do a valuation and view the items before moving day.

Taylor Smith
Web Developer

Taylor comes armed with great experience including participation in the BAFTA Young Game Designer Mentoring Scheme. When he’s not gaming, Taylor is also a Young Leader with the Scouts.
Top moving tip: You will always need more bubble wrap than you think.

Tom Wood
Senior Paid Search Executive

Tom has an MEng in Mechanical Engineering. He is responsible for our PPC campaigns and analyses data to provide insights about the property market. In his spare time, he is a keen runner and cyclist and loves going to the cinema.
Top moving tip: Declutter your belongings before you move to avoid the effort (and cost) of transporting things you don't need!

Yngve Skramm
UX Manager

Yngve joined us in 2020 to strengthen the UX team. He has been working with user experience design since before it became fashionable, and believes there is no such thing as user error, only design error. His mantra is "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." Outside office hours, he enjoys playing and writing music.
Top moving tip: When moving to another country, make sure you have all the paperwork in order, otherwise it can cost you both time and money.

Zach Griffin
Online Marketing Analyst

Zach joined as a User Tester, with a focus on testing new updates to the website before joining our marketing team as an analyst. Outside of the office, Zach enjoys playing guitar (or the latest unusual instrument he found in a junk shop), hiking and reading anything he can get his hands on.
Top moving tip: Sell, donate or throw away as many unnecessary items in your house as possible before packing - do you really need seventeen spare pillows?
