What were you doing before you came to Ingenuity as as Senior Account Manager?

Before joining, I was an Account Director for Mauve Partnership. Based in Mayfair, I was responsible for overseeing the strategy and implementation of complex multi-partner campaigns for high net worth customers leveraging the priceless platform for MasterCard. I also had sole responsibility for onboarding new clients including Coutts, Hertz, Virgin Atlantic, Heathrow’s VIP proposition and Taj Hotels & Palaces loyalty programme. Managing a team of up to 5 strong and reporting directly to the Managing Director.

 

What does your normal day look like?

  • Establishing key target individuals for campaign lead outbound communication (prospecting)
  • Building compelling, relevant and tailored copy designed to maximise response
  • Placing calls to these targets
  • Following up
  • Building strategy for outreach going forward
  • Managing my clients expectations and deliverables required to maximise opportunity
  • Attending meetings with a view to maximising the value of any given lead
  • Constantly monitoring social and news channels to find new angles for opportunity for my clients and Ingenuity

Who would your 3 ideal dinner party guests be and why?

Martin Sorrell – Feel like he’s got some good stories

Keith Weed – To ask why he hasn’t responded to my emails

Adam Levine – A bit of eye candy

 

What’s the next big thing you’re excited for this year in terms of marketing? And why?

Apple’s next product launch is set to be a game changer in terms of uptake of AR, keen to have a play with the tech and work with some great brands rolling it out!

 

What are three things still left on your bucket list?

    1. Buy a Jag that will actually pass an MOT (funny story about the last one)
    2. Make it through a month without visiting my overdraft
    3. Fly a plane
