26 June 2019 0

Going into our 5th anniversary we've strengthened our skills with a trio of talented new recruits.

As we celebrate our 5th birthday this year, we’ve strengthened our brand, SEO and product innovation skills with a trio of talented new recruits.

We’re also continuing to grow our service offering and client base. We’ve won a range of new projects including; content marketing for North of England Commissioning Support Unit (NECS), raising the profile of new Durham development, Milburngate, and event impact research for the European Professional Club Rugby Finals. The new recruits will add to our team’s experience across brand, SEO and product innovation.

New to the team…

Jenny File has joined the team as Marketing Manager, bringing with her a broad range of strategic marketing experience across both commercial and charitable sectors. Most recently Jenny worked at online and catalogue-based ethical retailer Traidcraft, having previously held different marketing roles as a VSO volunteer in Indonesia and for various media publications including The Independent.


Joining the team as Digital Marketing Manager, Lisa Kelly brings with her ten years of experience in digital marketing agencies and recently in-house at one of the UK’s biggest fast-fashion companies. She has implemented successful digital campaigns and strategies for a host of well-known brands and industries, across consumer, B2B and third sector, as well as being responsible for a Facebook page which was named ‘most loved UK brand’ by SocialBakers in 2018.

Completing the trio of new recruits is David Bowe who joins us as a Research Executive. A graduate of Newcastle University, David previously worked in strategy and product innovation for a North East-based housing association, bringing with him experience in data analysis, horizon scanning and product development.

Our Director, Kathie said; “We’re really proud of how much the business has achieved in just five years. And with the talented team we have in place we are targeting further growth over the next couple of years.

“We’ve won a few really exciting projects recently, including work for Milburngate and NECS. And have much more in the pipeline across our areas of expertise.”

A digital refresh

As part of our 5th anniversary we’ve also refreshed our website. The new look website better represents our services, previous work and the personality of our fantastic team.

“Our digital team has revamped the website, to showcase the work we do to provide intelligent insight and creative solutions to our clients. We also wanted to show off our greatest assets – our talented, friendly and approachable team.”  Kathie added.

Launched in 2014, all of our profits are reinvested back into the work of NewcastleGateshead Initiative.
