Impulse isn’t run by technology, its run by people. We’re a friendly bunch, with decades of industry experience between us, and we think it’s always nice to put a face to a name.

If you talk to us regularly, there will be a few names you’ll recognise on this page, otherwise, nice to meet you.

Liz Hill

If you work in an accounts role you’ve probably spoken to Liz at some point. Managing the company’s accounts and finance department, she makes sure that invoices both in and out get paid in a timely manner. A few years ago Liz caught the cruise bug but she always makes sure the biscuit jar is topped up before she goes.
