Strengthening the account management team

Emma Blaken joins from manufacturing company, Recticel Limited, where she managed accounts valued at £1.5m and is keen to unleash her creativity working with long-term clients as an account manager.

Emma said: "Purpose is an exciting place to be right now, we can see clients are ready to get back to business and look at new tactics to engage their customers. I’m already enjoying being part of the team and helping clients access all the tools we have to offer."

Former F1 international event account manager, Brogan Edwards makes a second new addition to the Purpose Media Team. As a hospitality specialist, Brogan is organised and outgoing and will work to support clients with  key projects as sales account manager.

Speaking about her new role, Brogan said: "I previously worked at Pride Park Stadium and ran the hospitality boxes, I met Purpose Media there a few times, and knew they were my kind of company!

"I already love working with our clients as a point of contact for accounts and new business, to advise them on the best options for marketing, it’s really interesting."

Putting digital front and centre

Making a hat-trick of new recruits, Ellie Buckle joins from digital agency Hallam as Purpose Media’s head of digital and strategy. With her career to date embedded in all things digital and strategy, Ellie brings with her a passion to grow the digital offer from Purpose Media.

Ready to move digital clients forward, Ellie said: "Purpose Media has great plans to grow in the next few years. It’s an exciting time to be in Digital Marketing and there are new innovations coming through that we can use to shape our clients strategies.

"I’m really excited to get started and see what we can achieve!"

Commenting on the new recruits Purpose Media managing director, Matt Wheatcroft said: "Purpose Media started in a recession, and while many businesses would look to avoid taking risks or new recruits we know that’s not the way to survive.

"Looking after our customers and growing our digital offer is the best way we can make sure our clients come out of a crisis on top, and right now we’re totally committed to ensuring people who work with us don’t just survive, they thrive.
