Meet the leadership team at Etsy Manchester

Every structure needs some nails or a bit of glue, and for that we have a Leadership Team.  The 1500+ member Etsy Manchester team is organised by a small but dedicated team of tireless volunteer leaders.

Their commitment – coming up with new ideas for the group, organising events, cheerleading, promoting the group far and wide, creating helpful and fun meetups, as well as drinking all the alcohol and eating many cakes – giving up their free time and doing it all for free – is what helps make the group tick.  Wanna meet them?

Emma Cottam

Emma is hyper-efficient, a talent that we all envy! As Captain she’s responsible for corralling the rest of the team and turning a usually woolly concept into something plausible. She’s also a tip-top photographer and has an Etsy presence over at emmycphotography.

Kat Pearson

Kat Pearson by name and cat person by nature! Kat is a ceramic and digital artist specialising in cats and other pet portraits.
