Say Hello to Vanessa Whiteley!
We are delighted to say that the PMD family keeps getting bigger and better!
So to celebrate all this growth, we wanted to share some information about our new team members with you. As they join, we will run a quick getting to know the team piece, and today it is the turn of our new Marketing Manager, Vanessa Whiteley!
What is your day to-to-day role at PMD?
My day-to-day role at PMD is to look after and manage all aspects of marketing, from emails, campaigns to social media I cover it all! I am currently working on a big project so keep your eyes peeled for exciting things coming from PMD in 2022!
What do you like to do outside of work?
Outside of work, I love to practice yoga and keep fit in general by going to the gym. I also love spending time with my friends and family and reading.. my current read is “Girl A” and I can’t put it down.
What was your role before joining PMD?
Before joining PMD, I was the Marketing Manager for a technology reseller based over in Wakefield.
Where is the most exciting place you have traveled to?
This is a tough one. I think in terms of excitement, I would have to say Las Vegas as it is another level when it comes to the nightlife!
What made you want to get into Marketing?
I have always loved marketing and how it can elevate and impact a business. The world of a marketer is so varied and ever-changing, which is always so exciting to me. I could not imagine doing anything else, and working with PMD allows me to explore my creativity and build on an already powerful brand.
What is it about PMD that gets you excited about the work culture?
Everyone within the PMD team is so passionate and dedicated to what they do and the business itself. It is refreshing to see such great enthusiasm from not just management but every individual throughout the business. It is inspiring.
What has been the highlight of your first few weeks at PMD?
I would say getting my first campaign across the line and out to clients and attending the Legends of Industry dinner with a handful of the team!
What kind of advice would you offer for anyone interested in working in the finance industry?
I would say go for it! I came into this industry with very little knowledge in finance. I’ve managed to pick it up in the few weeks I have been here thanks to the wider team. Be fearless and, do not be afraid to try something new!
