Kerry Seymour

Managing Director

Kerry's talent lies in juggling her roles as rainmaker, client service director, bean counter, HR manager, creative strategist, coffee junkie, school governing body member, wife and mom! Who would have thought a degree in journalism from Rhodes University would lead to all this. She spent her early career at Independent Newspapers followed by a stint at Marcus Brewster Publicity. Since launching Splash in 2001 she has run PR campaigns across every conceivable industry. When she's not nuturing Splash or her children, you'll find her on a beach or up a mountain running, walking or just breathing in Cape Town!

Christine Pearson


After completing a BA in Journalism at Rhodes University in 2008, Christine stayed true to her purple heritage and joined former Rhodes graduates Kerry Seymour and Doug Carew at Splash PR in 2009. Not shy of a challenge, she has achieved excellent results on the Vote for Table Mountain campaign, and for PUMA and Table Mountain Cableway.
