The UK economy may be operating under difficult conditions but at PR and marketing agency Allott and Associates Ltd we’re continuing our growth strategy with new appointments. We’ve hired a new client development specialist and a marketing assistant, both working out of our Yorkshire offices.
Despite the challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic and Brexit, Allotts is successfully winning contracts with its range of integrated marketing services both at home and abroad, leading to Kelly Donaghy joining us to develop new business opportunities in Allotts’ core markets and beyond. Ollie Heum has been recruited to assist with the digital needs of a growing customer base.
Kelly Donaghy brings her significant experience in the manufacturing and food processing industry to the table, and she was also a regular attendee at the PPMA showpiece event at NEC Birmingham (sadly cancelled this year due to the pandemic), as well as Foodex and IFFA.
A dab hand at snooker, several years ago Kelly was one of the first female players to turn professional, reaching the last 32 of the women’s world championship when the final was held at the Crucible in Sheffield. She said: “My snooker playing days are well over, cue my change of career! I am thrilled to join such a client-focused agency and I’m looking forward to playing my part in the future success of the business.”
Ollie Heum, meanwhile, has joined us via the Government’s apprenticeship scheme and is also excited to bring his digital talents to the team. He said: “I’m very happy to be here. Allotts is such a vibrant company it presents a great opportunity for me to further my career.”
As the nation grapples with the economic earthquake caused by the public health crisis, at Allotts we’re still winning new work and further employment opportunities are in the pipeline as trade picks up, with plans to recruit a general manager.
Managing Director Philip Allott concluded: “I’m delighted to welcome Kelly and Ollie to Allotts. I’m confident that both will make valuable contributions to the ongoing success of the agency. Despite the challenges both at home and globally due to Covid-19, we continue to invest in all aspects of the business to deliver effective and fully integrated marketing campaigns, enabling our clients to continue winning new work in both good times and bad.”
