Lou Johnson
Director
I grew up in land locked Cambridge, where my love of sailing on the River Cam lead me to Southampton Institute to study Maritime Leisure Management, before going on to achieve the CIM Professional Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing and an MA Marketing Management from Southampton Solent University.
Louise Crowden
Director
Having learnt to sail in the South China seas and then living on the Hampshire coast, it was a natural progression for me to work in the marine industry. Box PR means that I can combine my marketing and PR training with the marine industry. I enjoy planning marketing strategy and promoting my clients business to a wide audience.
