New Business & Marketing Director UK

My Role at Celerity

My role as New Business & Marketing Director at Celerity means that I am responsible for managing the company’s new business and marketing strategy and helping us to secure new clients. I create and deliver the annual strategy and budget for EMEA and North America. The strategy includes a mix of events, PR, SEO, content syndication, networking, awards, webinars, blogs and much more.

My responsibilities also extend to bid and pitch management, where I oversee the qualification of new business opportunities, the allocation of resource and the creation of proposals and pitches. As an incredibly sales-focused organisation, we invest a lot of time and resource to ensure our new business teams are able to both tell the right story and be well practised at delivering it.

A Bit About Me

At work, I am probably best known for being career focused and ambitious – I put a lot of time into my role and development. I read a lot of books and lifestyle blogs and I thoroughly enjoy a discussion on politics and public affairs – even if it just comes from listening to LBC on the drive to work!

Outside of work, I spend time with friends trying new bars and restaurants in London. I love travelling the world too, and try to tick off at least four new cities or countries a year. My guilty pleasure, which most people don’t expect, is trash TV – things like Don’t tell the Bride, KUWTK, Love Island…I just can’t get enough!
