Meet our new team members!Thursday, 22nd March 2018
We’re delighted to introduce you to two new members of the pro-manchester team!
Mel Hill joins as communications manager and Ilona Alcock takes up the new post of sector group manager.
Mel brings PR, marketing and web expertise gained from working in well known Manchester organisations UKFast and Forever Manchester.
Following the launch of pro-manchester’s new website and branding earlier this year, Mel will continue to raise the profile of the organisation and create engaging content for members and the wider business community.
She said: “I have instantly felt at home with the team at pro-manchester and am delighted to have joined at such a busy time. I’m looking forward to making sure everyone in Manchester knows about the great work we do.”
Ilona, previously employer liaison consultant at the University of Salford, has been a regular attendee at pro-manchester events over the last couple of years and is very active in Manchester’s business networks.
She has previously worked in law, technology and recruitment so is well placed to understand the challenges faced in different sectors.
Ilona said: “I have been an advocate of pro-manchester since relocating to the North West and am so excited to join the team to drive the sector programme forward.
“The enthusiasm across all the committees is so inspiring and it’s refreshing to see such commitment to making Manchester a better place for everyone to do business.”
The team now consists of eight full time staff and the extra support will enable pro-manchester to add to its already extensive events programme.
Sam Booth deputy CEO added “We are delighted to welcome Mel and Ilona into the team.
“In the short time they have been with us they have already had a significant impact. The team and I are very excited to see what we can achieve in the months to come.”
