Sales & Marketing Manager
As an ex-olympian working within Prosell is like putting on a glove. My role fits neatly between our marketing team and our sales team. I am constantly looking at ways to increase our connections with customers who are looking to improve their performance, using technology, push and pull marketing and all the methods of communication.
Before Prosell I worked in higher education, as a communications specialist, responsible for communicating news and events to many different audiences. My degree was in Business Information Technology, and whilst at Uni, I worked for British Aerospace on my work placement and got a taste for the big corporate environment.
After I graduated, I went on to work at SEEBOARD plc and then IBM for six years. I left IBM when I had my son, Harry, and started up my own freelance business. I've worked with local businesses, large PR companies and sports stars, obtaining some great media coverage over the years.
When I'm not working, I’m on the Thames kayaking. I raced for Great Britain at the Olympics in 1992 in the sprint kayaking event (K4 – four person - 500m) and I still race. Luckily my son and husband are also kayakers so we enjoy training and racing together.
