Meet Kirsty, Bristol Media's Marketing, Events & Operations Manager
Bristol Media has appointed Kirsty Phillips as Marketing, Events and Operations Manager, bringing a wealth of client service and marketing communications expertise to the South West based creative industries membership organisation.
About Kirsty's role
A newly-created full time post, Kirsty will be charged with delivering an exciting programme of events for members, developing marketing communications activities to support membership and managing Bristol Media's day to day operations. A large part of her role is to champion members outside of the city, raising the profile of Bristol's creative industries above and beyond the South West.
With a background in client services and over 12 years' experience working for agencies in the South West as well as internationally, Kirsty has worked with brands including the National Trust, GSK, American Express and McDonald's, planning and delivering direct marketing, events and branding projects.
Chris Thurling, Bristol Media's Chair, commented: "Kirsty will be a great addition to the team. She has a breadth of experience that will really help drive our activities, support important collaborations between our members and continue to drive creativity, innovation and the fame of the region across the South West and importantly beyond.
Kirsty added: "Living in Bristol I know just how thriving a city it is and the huge potential it offers. I'm really excited to be joining an organisation committed to raising the profile of a sector that I'm passionate about and am looking forward to helping Bristol Media grow from strength to strength."
Kirsty is based at the new Origin Workspace on Berkeley Square and is interested in hearing from potential speakers and companies who would like to get involved in Bristol Media's plans for the year ahead. Contact Kirsty@bristolmedia.co.uk.
