Victoria Ruffy founded Little Red Rooster in 2010 after 12 years of PR experience across music, interiors, fashion and technology. As well as being head of PR for Samsung UK, Victoria has worked with the likes of 02, Valentino, Armani, Ted Baker and Barbour, plus top retailers Fortnum & Mason, Selfridges, John Lewis and House of Fraser. Henry Griffiths is co-owner and 50% shareholder in Little Red Rooster, coming on board in 2012. He began his career as a journalist, writing for publications such as Gramophone and Stuff, before switching to press relations in 2002. He spent seven years as a founding partner of audio agency Andy Giles Associates where he worked with premium consumer electronics brands including Denon, Loewe and Meridian. The demand for tech, lifestyle and fashion brands to reach ever wider audiences brought Vic and Henry together, fighting off competition from larger agencies to spearhead successful campaigns for Selfridges and Ruark Audio, Bisque Radiators and Ted Baker. In fact, it was that final winning pitch for Ted Baker – beating four major agencies to the punch in the process – that convinced the pair to join forces and create a company owning the space where design, technology and fashion collide. The rest of the Little Red Rooster coop is packed full of equally passionate professionals with an expert understanding of the clients they represent and the media world they know how to crack. They have one simple mission – getting the very best coverage possible.
