Ammatti is a new marketing and communications consultancy specialising in marketing and business development for financial and professional services firms, as well as employee communications.
Head of Marketing, Communications & Business Development
Hargreaves Lansdown Corporate Solutions
February 2008 to December 2009
In this role I was responsible for the management and delivery of all business development, marketing and communications activity for Hargreaves Lansdown Corporate Solutions. As well as marketing strategy, product/service development and delivery of my marketing plan, my role included: producing informative communications on current issues for employers and those managing pension schemes; the production of scheme literature, announcements, newsletters, etc for our clients; and managing the employee engagement team that delivered group presentations and one-to-one meetings to scheme members.
Head of Marketing & Business Development Manager
Punter Southall Ltd
September 2004 to January 2008
I built the marketing department up from scratch and by the time I left the team included marketing assistants, designers, a copywriter and our CRM Database Manager and their support. I was responsible for developing annual marketing plans and budget requirements, in line with key new business development strategies and delivery against these. I reviewed and refreshed the suite of marketing literature and continued to develop these on an ongoing basis. I produced brochures, booklets & flyers for all new products & services etc, as well as the regular newsletter.
I reviewed training requirements for the Principals and Senior Consultants in the business and implemented training programmes in areas such as networking, advanced presentation skills and the new business process.
I established a complete program of regular regional conference, seminar and roundtable events ranging from personal, focused sessions for 10-12 people to events attracting up to 300 attendees.
I took Punter Southall through a re-brand process and at the start of 2007 we launched the new branding, look & feel and logos for all our Group businesses.
I was responsible for generating and developing new service or product ideas, working with consultants and technical experts, to get to the point we could take them to market. I then oversaw PR activity, decided on advertising/promotional campaigns and worked with both Principals in our individual offices and our cold/warm calling resources to generate interest, appointments and business from these.
I successfully implemented a business-wide CRM and database system and undertook a review of our tender and pitching procedures, recommending and implementing significant changes and improvements.
