Plinkfizz proves its resilience in the face of lockdown and makes two high profile appointments

Posted on: 28/08/2020 by Tina Meigh

Plinkfizz is going from strength-to-strength supported by the appointment of two new members of staff.

Account Managers Charley Bright and Emma Thorley have joined the team to support our continued growth. These appointments are the icing on the cake for Plinkfizz as we’ve also taken on 12 new clients during the pandemic.

Charley is fully equipped to handle the role of Account Manager with more than 10 years’ experience in a marketing management role. Her skills include a range of online and offline marketing activities.

She joins us from JCB Worldwide Marketing where she held the marketing manager’s title. There she led on and managed three agricultural exhibitions including the world’s largest show, Agritechnica. She also oversaw the launch of the Electric Teletruk, which is a new generation of innovative products.

Charley said: “I love nothing more than having a new marketing project or event to manage. I’m passionate about delivering successful campaigns that align with company objectives, drive business growth and deliver that all important ROI. I know I’m going to find great success here with the team at Plinkfizz.”

Emma also joins us from JCB Worldwide Marketing where she held the position of Marketing Communications Manager. Emma oversaw the launch of the Fastrac 8000 which is JCB’s largest ever agricultural tractor alongside many other product launches and JCB exhibitions across a diverse range of industry sectors.

She has more than a decade of integrated marketing experience where she delivered creative and profitable solutions to drive sales, and attract and maintain customers globally.  Emma’s skills are in global communication plans, delivering high-energy business proposals and coordinating creative and innovative integrated marketing campaigns from conception to fruition.

Emma explained: “I’m an enthusiastic, conscientious and passionate Account Manager. With my marketing expertise I know I can help our clients to reach their full marketing potential. I’m looking forward to working with clients to enhance and support their business needs.”

Our Managing Director, Fiona Hawkins commented: “We’re thrilled to be bringing on new recruits, especially now we’re coming out on the other side of the coronavirus pandemic. I know they’re all going to be great assets to the business and to our clients. They‘re fitting in already and I can’t wait to see the whole team continue to grow.

“Our main priority at Plinkfizz is always our clients and making sure we can provide the best opportunities and services for them. Offering in-house marketing and PR solutions allows us to work seamlessly as an integrated marketing agency.”

These new appointments follow a further two. Annabel Fallows and Hannah Natalello took on their new roles just before the Coronavirus pandemic, and have both shown strength and resilience as new starters through a period of uncertainty.

Annabel joined as a Journalism graduate from Staffordshire University as Content Executive. Her role involves creating written content for clients from press releases and blogs to social media and web content.

Annabel commented: “I completed a placement at Plinkfizz when I was studying, so when I saw there was a vacancy, I knew I had to apply for the role. Plinkfizz was where I wanted to be, the working environment was perfect for me and the variety in an integrated marketing agency gives plenty of fresh challenges and opportunities for new skills.”

Hannah joined as SEO Specialist and uses her passion and expertise to tie together creative and technical elements that help websites to thrive online.

Hannah said: “My background is in search engine optimisation, copywriting, and client management. I love staying ahead of the curve in terms of search trends and techniques so being part of a business that puts innovation first is exactly where I need to be.”
