New Kids on the Blumilk Branding Block
We recently celebrated our 21st birthday, and so, what better way to celebrate our success than strengthening our Blumilk branding team with not three but four fantastic new starters.
The Blumilk Studio is home to some of the region’s very best creatives who regularly produce inspiring and innovative campaigns for our range of successful clients.
Strong team = Strong branding
However, to ensure our clients receive the very best service level with a dedicated point of contact, we have appointed two new project managers, Abi Dodwell and Holly Dawson.
Abi and Holly, as part of Blumilk’s live projects team, will work alongside our clients to understand their objectives and act as brand guardians to steer their projects to success.
Overseeing the live projects team will be Blumilk’s new Head of Strategic Delivery, Jo Roberston. Jo brings a wealth of experience to the Blumilk branding team, having worked for some of the world’s largest utility and travel brands across Europe including DFDS and Northumbrian Water.
Our fourth recruit is Kim Walker, who joins Blumilk as Head of Sales and Marketing. Kim will work alongside client director, Lauren Hindhaugh, and Client Relationship Manager, Katie Armstrong, to ensure Blumilk clients receive the best possible pre-project care level.
Kim will also be responsible for all of Blumilk’s marketing functions.
Holly Dawson – Project Manager
‘I have worked in marketing and customer engagement roles since leaving sixth form.
With such a huge interest in business growth, branding and the creative element of marketing brands, my role at Blumilk sees me guiding our clients to success and their projects to life.
My experience comes from working as part of an in-house marketing team, but I love the variety that working for an agency brings.
Every day is different, and I get to work with unique brands, their exciting projects, and some of the best creatives in the industry.
Away from my lists and plans (I’m super-organised), I love to try new places to eat as well as exploring new places. I recently visited Barcelona and can’t wait until I can return.
Oh, and I love dogs!’
Abi Dodwell – Project Manager
‘I started working as a project manager for Blumilk just before lockdown, and although it’s been strange getting to know our clients and my team remotely, I feel as though I have been part of the team for years.
Before I began my marketing career, I worked in film and hospitality. You could say working in these industries is a great combination of creative and client engagement!
I am incredibly excited to be part of Blumilk and am already working with some great clients who are already seeing their projects and visions become a reality.
Outside of the Ouseburn (or home at the moment!) I enjoy staying active and do this by exploring new places at every opportunity I get.
The Simpsons are my obsession, hence the framed Matt Groening-style portrait I have at home.’
Jo Robertson – Head of Strategic Delivery
‘I’m no stranger to the marketing industry, having headed up a number of strategic teams to deliver exciting and inspiring marketing campaigns.
I am excited to work with all of Blumilk’s fantastic clients and my experience with leading strategic projects for brands both local and global, particularly in the utility and travel sectors, will greatly support them on their journey to growth and success.’
Kim Walker – Head of Sales and Marketing
‘As a qualified journalist and digital marketer with a strong background in business development, I am delighted to be part of the Blumilk team.
Having worked on sales and marketing campaigns in-house for the utility, manufacturing, and training sectors, I appreciate first-hand the importance of understanding a client’s objectives and working alongside their current marketing resources to achieve them.
Whether it’s a total rebrand or minor changes to their app, I am confident that by marketing Blumilk’s approach to client relationships, as well as their remarkable creative capacity, Blumilk will be able to grow and, more importantly, so will our clients!’
