Elliot HowardElliot Howard Office junior

They used to say that behind every great man stands a strong woman. So maybe behind every strong(ish) woman lurks a laid-back kid practising jump shots. Please meet the longest serving member of our team, Sam‘s son Elliot Howard.

After a lifetime of hanging around PR types, and joining The Crowd when he was 12 years old, Elliot is still quite content to keep his own contribution fairly modest. Showing little entrepreneurial zeal at this stage, he is happy enough to help out with the odd spot of research, update a media list or two and maintain the website.

“The trick to keeping the boss happy is to admire her spreadsheets and nod a lot.”

Instead, he has chosen to preserve his energy for poring over vast philosophical tomes first at St Andrews University and now at LSE.

His passion for travel has seen him rack up long trips across Eastern Europe, Northern India, Central Africa and Central America. Despite the evident warmth of the people, Sam is convinced he should have taken an extra vest.
