Key people

Rupert  Pick
Rupert Pick
Director & Founder

Game-keeper turned poacher, Rupert, cut his marketing and commercial teeth at Unilever before moving onto ?Whatif! and finally finding his calling as one of the co-founders of Hot Pickle. When he's not hatching campaign strategies he can be found perfecting a short-crust. 

Patrick Hammond

Prior to starting Hot Pickle, Patrick produced content and events for leading cultural and performance arts venues in the US.  From the American South, he originally came to the UK for graduate school at Cambridge and hasn’t left, picking up a taste for Marmite and cricket along the way.  

Andrew  St Clair Johnson
Andrew St Clair Johnson
Director & Founder

Andrew began his career planning and running brand extension programs for household names such as Coca Cola, Jeep and Hearst Magazines. Bitten by the entrepreneurial bug and with an urge to embrace his inner creative, Andrew co-founded Hot Pickle with Patrick and Rupert. Away from the office Andrew is most likely to be found jumping into a cold Atlantic ocean with his surfboard.
