KAREN HOUGH

Originally from Stockport, near Manchester, Karen ventured South in 1989 and began working with Christina as an assistant in 1993 when the agency was still in it’s infancy. Subsequently, over the next few years, she developed the commercials side of the business to such an extent that it was decided to open a new division within the company specialising in all areas of advertising and Christina Shepherd Advertising (C.S.A.) was established.
