Ellis Pitt, Head of Brand and Communications
Graduating from Kingston Polytechnic in 1989, Ellis began life as a product designer from which he moved quickly into senior management and company leadership positions. In his early 20’s, he became interim MD of a family-owned furniture business where, in the depths of the then recession, he grew turnover and profit and sold the business three years later.
Over the last 25 years, he has drawn on experience from assignments in numerous sectors to deliver accelerated and breakthrough business and organisational performance using design and innovation methodologies. His work with the Design Council delivered three Design Business Association ‘Design Effectiveness Awards’ in four years.
After leading a strategic rebrand for BJS in 2014, Ellis now leads their brand and communications strategy for the next stage of their growth.
