Our key people
Ruth – Animation
I’m based in London, UK, and studied traditional animation at Southampton Solent University. I have a wide range of professional experience creating animated music videos and commercials. My 15 years of animation experience includes workshops in schools with teachers and students, guiding them through the stop motion animation process from script to screen. I’m currently the resident animator at HUE and create stop motion videos and resources to share in classrooms around the world.
Richelle – Social media
I graduated from St. Edward’s University, Austin, TX, with a BA in Child Psychology. My experience includes classroom teaching, working with students in special education, inclusion, and general education settings from Kindergarten through 7th grade classrooms. I am an award-winning teacher experienced in team leadership, mentoring and presenting on topics including PBL and STEM. I left education in 2016 to join HUE to create content and resources for teachers to support HUE cameras in the classroom setting.
Cathy – Spanish markets
I’m a fluent French and Spanish graduate and joined HUE in 2016 to manage the Spanish speaking markets, help promote HUE to UK schools and provide sales and technical support to HUE’s French customer base. I love working with the teaching community and managing the HUE blog, Teachers in Focus, and Awards programmes.
Rowena – Operations
After a few years of teaching English as a foreign language, I completed a degree in Turkish literature and language. I then ‘fell’ into operations and have spent most of my career getting involved in all kinds of projects including events, financial management, recruitment and office moves. I’m responsible for several aspects of the business including the HR function and CSR activity.
I’m also quite partial to a bowl of soup.
Petra – International marketing
Always attracted by travelling, I left Slovakia, my country of origin, to do my university studies in England. I started working for HUE in London but then moved to France where I established HUE’s French operations. I enjoy working on research projects, setting up new markets, and participating at events.
The red HUE is my favourite.
Kasia – Finance
I’m Polish and have been working for the company since 2005. Initially helping with admin tasks, customer support and shipping, I gradually moved towards sales and logistics and today I’m in charge of accounts and helping with stock management. I’m interested in mediaeval / early Renaissance art, Italy and tennis. My day MUST include 2 cups of coffee:)
Maria João – Research
I joined the HUE family in June 2019. Based in my home country, sunny Portugal, I handle market research and produce regular reports on HUE’s performance and competitors. Previously I worked in sectors including communications, marketing and publishing.
I’m married with 3 kids and no pets… I don’t even intend to add one to the family (pets that is 😀! )
Jakub – Logistics
I joined the HUE family in March 2023. Originally from Poland, I have lived in London my whole life and obtained my law degree from the University of Sussex. I have a range of responsibilities including admin, office tasks, shipping and logistics and answering technical support issues. I am interested primarily in football and travelling and enjoy collecting retro football shirts.
Liz – Technical
Having been with HUE since 2005, most of which involved technical support, I’ve seen the full range of what people get up to with their cameras and enjoy learning new things in order to solve a good mystery and make our products work better for everyone. Aside from that I’m far more at home with a computer than adventuring and am a stickler for accessibility. My passions include video games, music and animation.
Mel & John – Founders
Like most startups this company began on a cardboard box in our front room! We both had businesses in tech: mobile technology and corporate IT and joined forces to create HUE. We’ve had a lot of fun building this business and creating our great team.
We now have our products sold all over the world and we are working on new sustainable solutions for EdTech, Gaming and Business.
Thanks to our staff for their continued hard work and creativity and to our loyal customers.
Uveys – Logistics (Türkiye)
Based in Istanbul, I’ve been with HUE for several years and am involved with shipping and logistics. I like to play and watch football (my team is Liverpool), anime and play video games.
