Emily Waddell

Marketing & Business Development Manager


01582 731161


I am the Marketing and Business Development Manager, working across our 3 offices in St Albans, Luton and Harpenden. I assist the partners, solicitors and support teams to develop and implement personal and firm-wide marketing strategies and initiatives.

I manage the delivery of the firm’s overall strategy, website content and event planning, as well as shaping our social media strategy, CSR programme and PR.

With over 12 years’ experience in marketing professional services firms, I bring vast knowledge and expertise. I am dedicated to ensuring colleagues are thriving and client care and expectations are met. I am also responsible for ensuring marketing campaigns created by Taylor Walton are consistently on brand.

Over the years I have built up a collection of skills some but not exclusively; digital marketing, internal and external communications, brand management, event management and client relationship management.

Having grown up locally, I understand what is important to our communities and as part of my role within our influential firm, I will look to support our local community where we can – whether that is using local suppliers or implementing initiatives through our CSR plans.

I am a Director of the St Albans Chamber of Commerce, as well as fulfilling my role as a Director, I am also on the committee for the St Albans Young Chamber where I work alongside a team to organise events for aspiring business people in St Albans.

I also sit on the board for the St Albans City of Expertise (COE) where I have organised and hosted the COE’s young professional events for the last 8 years.


I have a young family, I’m a keen horse rider and owner. I enjoy spending time with family, friends, walking the dog and travelling.
