pro-manchester is delighted to welcome Shaun Gibb to the team. Read on to find out a little bit more about him, and we’re sure you’ll see him at an event very soon! 

Hi, I’m Shaun, the new Events & Marketing Manager at pro-manchester.

For the last five years I’ve worked for BT within their IT Reseller business – BT Business Direct (formally dabs.com). I was Business Direct’s first dedicated Event Manager and Sales Enablement Executive, building an events programme from the ground up, producing and implementing event planning tools, executing awards dinners, AGMs, tech for teachers events and sales floor blitz days to name a few. I’ve spent the last 11 months as a Strategic Brand Manager, managing Business Direct’s relationship with Microsoft and Poly (formally Plantronics).

I’ve previously worked for John Crane and Leeds Metropolitan University in Event Management roles including; campaign strategy, events management from cradle to grave, marketing & communications. I also have experience as an account manager across a global logistics company.

I hold a BA (Hons) in Business Studies and an MSc in Management Consultancy.

Originally from Preston, I’ve lived in Leeds and Manchester for the best part of 10 years before returning to Preston (well, Chorley) with my wife Stacey, step-son Alfie, baby daughter Aria and our border collie Lola. I enjoy walking, Geocaching and pub quizzes. Although most of my spare time these days is taken up by my mini-me, Aria. I have an eclectic taste in music with my playlist jumping from Michael Jackson to Rock to Motown to Electro and everything in between (and then back to Michael Jackson), although a lot of my headphone time is now spent listening to my favourite Podcasts. They say a good bio should end on a humorous note… I’m a Manchester United fan.
