Maria Fernanda Ashley

Head of Communications and Digital

Maria joined the team in August 2010. She started her career as a Marketing Assistant for a social enterprise supporting young and social entrepreneurs in London. This role allowed her to develop an understanding of the opportunities and challenges faced by start up companies, especially those with social aims at the heart of their businesses.  

After that she had a stint in the private sector, working for a specialist insurance broker.

She relocated to Edinburgh in 2009 and worked in events management for a local charity.
