Chris Cranshaw

Founder | Mananging Director

Since October 2020, Halt has been the centre of my attention. Whilst I am very hands-on and involved in creating and delivering content and brand assets for our clients, I also lead an exceptional team of permanent and freelance Creative and Marketing specialists.

After over 20 years in recruitment and marketing, I have a myriad of knowledge and expertise in the industry. This not only provides a solid foundation for delivering result-focussed marketing strategies, scroll-stopping social media content and campaigns but also enables me to upskill my team.

Prior to a 10-year stint as a recruiter, I studied creative design and marketing. After a taste of project managing social attraction marketing campaigns – I realised I could combine the two and went on to have a successful career as a recruitment marketeer. 

If I am not taking full advantage of any opportunity to escape to our family home in Spain, I can be found walking the dogs, playing the drums, creating free-hand illustrations, hunting for rare-classic Air Jordans, or wining and dining with friends and family. 

Likes: Early morning chilling in the garden with a strong coffee, anything sci-fi or pop-culture related, and weekend naps on the sofa.

Dislikes: Smell of rice cakes, untidy desks, and unsolicited sales emails/LinkedIn messages.
