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.

Rosemary Rogers
Director

Rosie has been involved with reallymoving since its launch in 1999. Her duties include overall management of our partner panels, general strategy, SEO and PR. She is married with two boisterous boys, 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
Head of Finance

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.

 

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!

Agnieszka Jaworska
Office Manager

Aggie is an Office Ninja. She's undertaking a CIPD Human Resources Certificate and is a trainee counsellor for a charity. Her interests include her fluffy Norwegian forest cat Odin, cinema and finding cheap flights to Europe. She's joined a Roller Derby league in Hertfordshire and is an avid gamer.
Top moving tip: Change your address everywhere, including your apps and online shopping. I ordered moving day pizza and it arrived at my old flat!

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 
Designer

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
Senior Content Marketing Executive

Andi spends a lot of time word-wrangling, whether that's writing articles, running our paid social ads, organising our email marketing or coming up with new content ideas. 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.

Anna Williams
Web Developer

Anna has a multidisciplinary scientific PhD and joined us as a data analyst, before moving to development. She's learning Norwegian, Swedish and Danish and puts them to good use annoying Scandinavian friends by muddling them up (albeit sometimes deliberately). When she isn't busy assimilating information she can be found playing World of Warcraft.
Top moving tip: Do your research on the potential costs and be sure to budget for them.

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!

Daisy Stephens
SEO Content Executive

Daisy creates content for our site, including articles, blogs, videos and infographics. When she’s not in the office she’ll be playing the violin, writing novels, sailing or planning a holiday.
Top moving tip: Definitely get a mortgage in principle before viewing houses – it makes you look better and will speed up the process.

Daniel Lee
Apprentice Web Developer

Daniel taught himself the art of development at home and is also currently teaching himself electronic engineering. In his spare time, he mostly plays video games, hangs out with his mates, works out or makes YouTube videos.
Top moving tip: If any moving boxes don’t have handles you can use a box cutter to create them.

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!

Graham Stanbridge
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.

Isatou Gillen
Legal Sales Executive

Isatou has a degree in Business Law from Nottingham Trent University. In her spare time she loves going out to eat, hitting the gym and loves to travel. 
Top moving tip: Always register your new address details at least two weeks before you move.

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: Always pack heavier items into smaller boxes to help your removal team out.

Jo McIntosh
Finance and Operations Manager

Jo is a chartered accountant, having qualified with Deloitte a long time ago. She oversees various finance and operations matters in the office. When not at work, Jo is a full time taxi service for her two children, plays squash 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.

Leo Reid
User Experience Designer

Leo joined us in 2019 and works on the user experience for both reallymoving and The Law Superstore. With degrees in design, management and acting he has always loved solving problems with logic and creativity. Leo likes Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain.
Top moving tip: Bring a small bag with you with essential items – toilet paper and soap should always be in there!

Nick Rose
Front End Developer

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.

Paolo De Luca
Development Manager

Paolo has extensive experience in managing software development in the real estate industry and a passion for clean and re-usable code. He was one of the founders of a mobile development studio and enjoys creating iPhone apps in his spare time. When away from the office he loves cooking, reading a good book, playing tennis and watching old TV series.
Top moving tip: Set up to redirect your post to your new home at least a couple of weeks before you move.

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!

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?
