Carl Russell Owen
Marketing Manager

I am responsible for…

Raising the company’s profile through communication.

Press releases, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Mailchimp, this website, posters, flyers – all aspects of internal and external communications.

My main aim in this position is…

To make a family trip to the theatre as common as going to the cinema or a gig.

My guilty pleasure is…

Mary Berry.

The best thing about working in Frân Wen?

Working in a small team that’s so passionate and enthusiastic about their work. And the staff parties of course!

When at home I…

Entertain a crazy sheep dog, two children and a wife, 20 youth rugby players and a temperamental coffee machine.

The shoes…

When I turned 35 I set myself one challenge per year until I was 40 – I’d always wanted to run a marathon so I ran the Blackpool Marathon in 2013, in 2014 (again on a running theme) I ran the Snowdon race and in 2015 I renovated a new family home. These faithful shoes have been with me every mile, from the training and the running of my first marathon to my work shoes when in the middle of a building site.

FYI, learning to play the guitar is next year’s challenge!
