Emma Barton – Managing Director


In 1999, Emma Barton, Managing Director, launched the Rubicon Label, after recognising a need in the market place to provide a specialist service for sales, marketing, revenue & events personnel at all levels in the hotel/hospitality sector.

She says “It was obvious to me following 11 years in the recruitment sector, sales people were crying out for a specialist who could offer a tailor made service, without the frills and fabrications, and where financial gain was not the motivating factor.”

“I believe Rubicon’s continued success can be directly related to our down to earth approach, our passion for our market and the relationships which have been forged as a direct result of our driving ambition.”
