All About us

Life isn’t about money or career or the number of likes we get. Relationships. That’s what really matters. With our partner, our kids, our parents, friends, colleagues.

So much advice available on the subject comes from unsolicited sources, isn't backed up by science, or it's hard to implement in our day to day lives. It comes in the form of (often cheesy) self help books or really inaccessible scientific tomes.

Our mission at Relish is to help you have the best relationships possible. We're doing the hard work to make it easy for you.

We’re based in New York and Edinburgh.

Lesley Eccles
CEO

With her husband for 23 years, mom of 3, and an experienced entrepreneur, Lesley knows a thing or two about relationships.

Having gone through a rollercoaster 10 years building the sports betting company FanDuel, she came out the other side determined to create a brand that will help bring people closer and genuinely make the world a better place (as corny as that sounds!).
