The Team

Meet our dedicated and friendly team, together we have over 70 years of experience covering all aspects of media and events organisation.

Gavin Esslemont

Finance Director

Forward-thinking, persistent, with an incredible eye for detail, Gavin founded Xcite along with Darren, 6 years ago. Gavin is a planner, and a thinker, and does both at a pace that leaves us struggling to keep up.

Darren Ross

Operations Director

Full of integrity, extremely generous, again with a super-human attention to detail, Darren is proud of the many achievements the team have seen along the way, in particular picking up the award for ‘Best Exhibition’ at the Scottish Event Awards in 2013.

Isla Stewart

Business Manager

Excitable, quirky, and a bit of a free spirit, Isla is the glue that keeps the whole team together. Driven by keeping clients, customers and indeed our own team happy with honesty, niceness and respect, Isla’s motto is ‘work hard, be kind’, always.

Alison Alphonse

Sales Manager

Passionate, loyal, and extremely determined, Alison is our longest serving sales manager. Alison loves practically everything there is to love, apart from people with negative attitudes, although give those people thirty minutes in a meeting with Alison, and they will be caught up in her wave of enthusiasm too!

Jade MacNeil

Events Coordinator

Our secret weapon! Jade might be one of our quieter employees, she certainly makes up for it with her hard working and strong work ethic!
