  • Nicky Gaylor ‚Äď Sylk, Managing Director
With over 12 years experience working in Advertising at top London agencies including Triangle and Billington Cartmell (now Hey Human), I was delighted to join Sylk as Marketing Director in 2007. This coincided with the birth of my first child and provided the perfect work/life balance for this next chapter of my life. Now on the verge of being peri‚Äďmenopausal with a daughter who is pre-pubescent, I have a real understanding of the health issues that women face as they age and a huge interest in driving awareness of the menopause and the products that can really help make a difference.
  • Nicola Davies ‚Äď Sylk, Communications
Joining the Sylk Team five years ago felt like a really natural step for me. My background in business administration and communications combined with my interest in women’s health issues made working with Sylk a great fit. I’ve always had a real interest and passion for women’s health. Growing up with a gynae nurse for a mother will do that to you! Talking about women’s issues was completely normal part of daily life in our house, so I’m determined to put women’s health on the map, and keep the conversation going.
