Meet the Red Stag directors

<strong>Nick Glaves</strong>
Nick GlavesManaging Director
Nick is the original poacher-turned-gamekeeper, switching from journalism to PR in 2010. As a journalist he started his career writing about countrysports and general country matters for titles such as The Countryman’s Weekly, The Field and much loved Yorkshire magazine, the Dalesman. He then moved on to become a staff writer on weekly newspapers, covering everything from rural affairs through to court and crime, ascending the ranks to become the business editor of one of the UK’s biggest selling regional daily titles. Nick also has a long-standing relationship with the College of Media and Publishing, where he runs training courses.

Nick grew up on the edge of the North York Moors and it was here his lifelong passion for the countryside and wildlife was forged. Never happier than when exploring the fields, nearby Wykeham and Dalby forests, or feeding sheep with his grandfather, those earlier experiences made a great impression on him. Nick joined The PR Company in 2010, eventually buying the business in 2014. He established his dream company – Red Stag Media – in 2016 to enable him to combine his passion for the countryside with is professional skills set in communications.

Outside of work Nick is an extremely keen shot and amateur cook, often in that order but only if he manages to hit something. He is a regular game shot in and around his native county of Yorkshire and holds the DSC1 qualification. He is also a big fan of tweed, red wine, scotch and tea!

Dan Urben

A former newspaper and website editor, our creative director has more than 20 years of experience in creating, crafting and delivering award-winning content across papers, magazines, radio, and a range of online and social platforms. He is also a master photographer and film-maker, whose work has featured in The Times, Telegraph, and Daily Mail, as well as in Vogue Italia.

Bought up on the South Downs, Dan maintains his passion for hiking and dog-walking in his adoptive Yorkshire.
