Our story

From the get-go, we’ve been inspired to make a difference.

Manton Executives started small. Founder, Luke, was diagnosed with adult-onset Tourette’s syndrome in 2018. That made it tricky to find a job. Anywhere.


So, he employed himself. Luke began offering his expertise to friends’ companies. As word of mouth spread, other businesses reached out - and the rest is history. Manton Executives became a fully-fledged business in 2019.


Before too long, the waiting list became over 3 months. We pride ourselves on efficiency, so it was clear that the business had to expand. Since then, we’ve taken on more clients and grown our team - each member vetted and trained by Luke himself.

Say “hello”!

Founder/Boss Babe

👋 Hi! I’m Luke, the Founder of Manton Executives.


Since 2020 I've been spicing up the business support landscape with my team of skilled VAs by my side.


Despite owning a successful business, I’m still in the office on the front lines - and there’s nowhere I’d rather be! Mon-Fri I’m making sure my clients’ lives run smoothly, doing shedloads of admin for them and keeping my perfectly manicured finger firmly on the pulse.


You’ll always find me serving my clients, serving my team and serving absolute looks.


(And whistling. I have Tourette’s.)


Looking forward to getting to know you!

Social Media Manager/Office Entertainer

I’m Katie - a lively and bubbly spirit in the office.


Most days I'm managing social media accounts, creating eye-catching marketing campaigns and helping my clients make sense of their day.


(And pole dancing on a hat stand, while trying to fit as many marshmallows as possible in my mouth. But we won’t talk about that.)


Let's talk about what I can do for you, instead.


From December, I’m off work taking care of a tiny human - but I’ve left all my work in Anna’s capable hands!


Social Media & PA Junior/Office Mum

I’m a self-confessed organisational goddess. I dive right into sorting through emails, shopping for Christmas presents and if anyone is going to remind you that you need to iron your trousers ahead of that big meeting tomorrow... It's me!


It’s conclusive: I’ve got a bunch of tricks up my sleeve and I'm not afraid to use them.


My favourite thing to do is balance a calendar. Call me crazy, but it is definitely my special skill... I also love cooking, hitting the gym and walks with my staffy, Lola.

Jodie Seabrook

Meet our very own globetrotting, everything-in-its-place, fix-anything guru, Jodie!

Whether it's bleeding radiators, coordinating your kitchen renovation, organising your dream vacation, or just a well-needed pep talk - I've got your back.


I used to plan weddings. You don't spend that many years being responsible for the biggest and most important day of someone's life without picking up a thing or two about organisation (and stress management)!


With me around, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. If you need something done, I'll find a way to make it happen.


When I'm not peeling my clients off the ceiling, you'll find me up at the crack of dawn, strolling under the sunrise with my trusty canine sidekick, Ralph.


Oh, and I take my role as ‘office dad’ very seriously. Bob the builder has nothing on me.


Copywriter & Social Media Exec/ Pedant

As an obnoxious 6-year-old, I used to regularly get up from my chair to edit other people's work and correct their spelling. I've gotten better at it since, and (hopefully) more tactful in my approach.


Bringing virtual vibes from my home office, I'm a copywriter who lives and breathes autobiographical storytelling.


With 2 drama degrees under my belt and a specialism in autobiographical theatre, taking real-life stories and turning them into bitesize, enjoyable nuggets is my whooole jam.


I'll make your content sound like you. But better.

Sam Wood

I'm probably the most organised rugby player you'll ever meet.


Where I've spent the last few years as a travel coordinator and the go-to marketing man for my rugby club (I tripled our match attendance one season) I've picked up a lot of tricks.


Whether it's finding you the perfect hotel for your mini break, getting more visibility for your socials or dipping in for a chat - I'm your man.

Anna Underwood

Hey! I'm Anna.


As a child, my idea of fun was tidying and organising my friends' bedrooms....


So needless to say, I love sorting other people's lives out! I also can't stand misaligned graphics. (A little to the left!!) I honestly consider revamping someone else's Instagram page self-care.


As a photography graduate, aesthetically pleasing visuals are my whole vibe.


I'd love to help you get your socials in order and I'll even clear your to-do list for you.


P.S. While Katie is on maternity leave, I'm here to cover anything you need from her.

Food and Beverage Manager

A handsome man indeed, Rocco is all about the chill vibes. Whether it’s a sirloin steak or a cherry chapstick, he’s always happy to tuck into some quality grub.

Special skills: Rocco can eat approximately 17x his body weight (in a single sitting). He can also sleep standing up, and he invented the glue on Postit notes.

Dislikes: Exercise. Wild swimming. Empty food bowls. And the term "circle back".


Head of Security

It’s Rio’s world. We’re all just living in it.

Rio’s a tiny queen (and a bit of a Karen, depending on what mood she’s in).

Special skills: Rio only weighs 1.4kg, but can take down an average male in under 4 seconds. She can run at the speed of light, and she can plank for 3 days straight.

Dislikes: computers, paperwork, and people. Oh, and crocs.
