Amanda welcomes a trio of stars into the Story team.
Our talent is what sets us apart. Everyone says it, but we know it. I have taken an age to recruit every single member of the team, because as well as possessing first class PR skills, news nous, literary genius and bouncing creativity, they all have that unmistakable whiff of #TeamStory.
It’s why I am so proud of our three new additions.
Director Gill Holtom – so hot off the press that we haven’t had chance to take a new team pic yet – is a stalwart of the Midlands PR scene whose reputation precedes her. She was described to me as ‘the hardest working PR you’ve ever met’, alongside all manner of glowing reviews. I’ll take that! Gill joins us to oversee operations, client services and growth.
Victoria Malone is our junior account director – a creative, straight-talking deliverer that gets things moving. She’s slotted into #TeamStory like she was born for it, bringing with her a heady mix of in-house senior NHS roles and client-facing B2B agency experience. Vicky works across a number of accounts including property firm Berkeley, Midlands Engine Investment Fund and engineering consultancy WSP.
Completing our trio is junior account executive Priya Khaira-Hanks. A smart cookie hailing from Oxford University and an ex-Guardian journalist with a talent for writing. She’s already making great strides from transforming our social accounts, to writing heavyweight, news-relevant features for our fantastic clients such as executive search firm Berwick and mobile content tech experts PM Connect.
With our new brand, new website and a fully united dream team – not to mention clients who we love and value – I’m very excited to see what 2019 has in store.
