Ascender welcomes Laura Manning!
Following the recent merger of Propeller and Trebuchet to form our new joint agency, Ascender Creative, we have been focusing on increasing our specialist knowledge, skill sets and offering.
With that in mind, we are extremely excited to welcome a new face into our team. Marketing extraordinaire, Laura Manning joins us in the role of Social Media Marketing Director and will be instrumental in supporting our goals for growth.
“I’m really excited to join this lovely team. The experience and talent the agency harnesses is exceptional and I’m excited to amplify their efforts and bring new clients on board.”
A bit about our new team member…
Laura started her marketing journey with a passion for design, taking a degree in Graphic Design at Lincoln University. While her degree was often focused around design theory, Laura got to work on a wide variety of live commercial briefs and even had her final year work showcased in China.
After getting a taste for marketing, Laura went on the search for the perfect role combining marketing and graphic design, alongside working through her professional training with the Chartered Institute of Marketing. Since then, Laura has worked hard to develop her expertise across a variety of disciplines. She has continued to progress working within a local, multi-award winning healthcare business, a vibrant visual content agency and more recently, a renowned strategy-first, integrated marketing agency working with global clients.
Laura is a meticulous planner, creatively curious and our new social media guru. With a positive, can-do personality, she thrives when bouncing around ideas with the team. But relaxed she is not. Super-driven and holding exceptionally high standards for the work she’s involved in, we’re excited not only about what she’ll bring to our clients, but also where she’s going to take our own marketing output.
Emma Dinmore, Business Development Director: “Expanding our social media offering further while driving our personal marketing is a challenging role, but she is 100% the one for the job. I can’t wait to introduce her to our clients.”
Our clients and prospects can look forward to officially meeting Laura on future calls and meetings – we’re so pleased to have her on board.
