We’re pleased to introduce another new member of the Upp team. April Dawson recently joined us as account executive after graduating from the University of Edinburgh and quickly proved herself to be a natural, jumping straight into some challenging client projects. Definitely a future b2b star! Get to know her below.


Where is your favourite place in the world?

Seville. I lived there for a year during my degree and fell in love with the city.

What are you currently watching on Netflix?

I’m catching up on Peaky Blinders.

What do you love most about your job?

I love that every day is different – it keeps me on my toes.

Where are you from?


What was your first ever job?

Blackberry picking in my grandparents’ orchard – I was paid in punnets!

What was the last book you read?

I’m currently reading 1984 by George Orwell, but recently finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Who would play you in the movie of your life?

Cameron Diaz. She’s a bit of a goofball with a good sense of humour, I’d like to think I’m like that.

What’s your proudest work achievement?

Being at the very start of my career I can only look forward to future achievements… and I hope there will be a lot of them!

Thanks April!
