 Head of Media, UK | Secret Escapes


I have recently joined Secret Escapes as Head of Media, UK  after being approached for this role by a previous employer. I am heading in to progress their creative solutions offering and help to grow what is currently a relatively media small team for such an expanding proposition.

I’ve kindly been nominated for securing the investment needed to steer the Factory Media business model from a print-loss digital company to a digital and broadcast business – opening a new revenue stream which has transformed our place in the market and paved the way for (fingers crossed) industry awards.

In truth I chose a career in client services purely because it was what my mum did. She ran her business from home and I grew up listening to her build rapport with clients on the phone. She always seemed to be laughing or having warm conversations with people so I never imagined myself doing anything less than this, and was lucky enough to find it in media.

Outside of work I love to exercise and travel, ideally both at the same time. I’m also a mentor within the Careers Academy where being a sounding board for my 17 year old mentee actually gives me a lot of perspective; remembering how hard it is to be 17 makes 29 feel a like breeze!
