Our Consultancy Team

Richard Sunderland

Richard Sunderland

Executive Chairman
Truths the rest of us overlook, connections we wouldn’t have made, fresh and often sideways glances at the world; it’s the heart of stand up comedy and also defines Richard. Our founder has always loved the way brands shape and are influenced by culture.
David Wood

David Wood

Group CEO
Our leader Woody appears to have built a career on always having something to say, some theory about how to improve things, some way to change it all for the better, some connections who can help. “Cogito, ergo, Some”.

Our cartographer. Global authority on place branding, a published author of vast experience, creator of Wales, master of his subject – this man puts things on maps.

Whitney Johnson

Managing Partner (New York)
Whitney is the energy and inspiration of Heavenly Inc. At 21 years old, she founded a non-profit to support children and teens living with HIV in South Africa – as you do.

She’s one of five current Heavenly employees who are former Heavenly clients. Hmm... subsequent career opportunities? Yet another reason to give us your business.

Natasha Joseph

Natasha Joseph

Business Manager
Storytelling is her passion and Natasha was a Heavenly staffer before taking a couple of years off setting up an online artsy magazine in Malaysia (as you do). The runaway came home once she realized how much she missed the creativity and energy of (Heavenly) London. She’s back and ready to take on the world.

An experienced marketing and advertising professional with many years of experience and so on. What you might not know is that he played Rugby for Bristol and Oxford University. He doesn't feel pain.
