Our Team

The Grebot Donnelly team presents a unique combination of educational and marketing expertise, which has kept us field leaders for over a decade. Every team member is committed to our core values: integrity, impact and quality.


Aimee Monteith
Managing Director

Aimee is relentlessly focused on the expansion and implementation of the company’s growth and development. She is instrumental in bringing strategic direction to client projects and leading a team of dedicated professionals. Aimee has over 15 years of creative and marketing experience working primarily with B2C multi-million pound companies across a range of industry sectors: financial, technology, travel, automotive, healthcare and fashion. She has strong business acumen and a broad skills set including branding, internal communications, vision and messaging working with organisations such as BMW, Canon, Kimberly-Clark and RBS.


“I believe that success is built through culture; understanding vision, values and behaviours, and employee engagement, and motivation that will ultimately deliver stability and growth for any organisation. I can also be found, or lost, at weekends, on a paddleboard somewhere on the River Thames!”



Anna Donnelly
Client Services Director

Anna has a unique perspective and understanding of the education sector; she joined us following a 4 year career in teaching with her setting achieving an ‘outstanding’ judgement. Anna has also worked as a governor in a number of schools; most recently in a Bedford primary school. Anna drives the client management team in delivering multiple projects across phases and sectors. She advises schools on strategic direction, pupil recruitment, maximising teacher recruitment and retention strategies and improving internal and external communications. Anna has overall oversight of all client projects and ensures that our services evolve meeting the marketing challenges and needs of our schools.


“Seeing our schools flourish and gain in confidence, as we work in partnership with them to achieve their goals, are the most rewarding parts of my role. The team work extremely hard to build strong client relationships and client satisfaction is our top priority. Running and keeping fit helps me to keep pace with the passion and enthusiasm of our schools.”



Kim Bowyer
Senior Account Manager

Kim has seven years’ agency experience and a first class honours degree. Kim uses her data skills on our research projects providing clients with detailed analysis and bespoke strategies whilst also delivering creative and copywriting solutions. She is instrumental in getting projects off the ground and delivering positive outcomes for our schools. Kim is also involved in the marketing and promotion of Grebot Donnelly and supporting our Training School.


“I have been with the company for many years, and in many guises – starting with work experience when I was studying for my degree in Psychology. I enjoy the research and analysis stages of every project and being part of a team that helps transform schools. Baking is my passion and there is some synergy with education marketing; taking good quality ingredients - moulding, shaping and turning them into a superior finished product.”


Hannah Kanish
Account Manager

Hannah is a marketing professional with six years’ experience in agency and in-house roles. After completing her degree in business and events management from the University of Winchester she started her career with an independent British lifestyle company headquartered in London. Hannah now focuses on devising marketing and communications strategies and implementing campaigns for our clients. Hannah brings a combination of creative, writing and research skills to the team and advises clients on social media strategy and management. She works on our managed services projects, working directly in-house for a number of our schools.


“No two days are the same at Grebot Donnelly and with variety comes knowledge, experience and personal growth. I particularly enjoy working with our schools on our managed services projects where I am part of their in-house team – it has been a real honour. Over the years, wanderlust has been my companion; exploring and visiting many different parts of the world.”


Nicola Prentice
Finance Manager

Nicola is our Finance Manager and has decades of experience in the education and financial sectors. She has brought a breadth of knowledge and expertise across the key functions of our organisation including finance, office management and HR.


“The strengths of our organisation, as a small team, are flexibility and agility allowing us to ensure that our clients are at the heart of our business, always taking centre stage. When time allows I enjoy being outdoors: in the garden, on my bike, canal boating or rowing on the river – sometimes a combination of all of the above!”
