Miller UK have been judged the North East’s best ‘In-House Marketing Team of the Year’ at the inaugural North East Marketing Awards 2019. Organised by Echo Events & Association Management and sponsored by Nigel Wright Recruitment, the event was organised to celebrate the very best of the region’s marketing sector last week at an elegant awards ceremony at the Discovery Museum, Newcastle.
The accolade follows suit after the marketing team successfully introduced a new era of marketing to Miller. Becoming a relatively new team of three, Barry Robison, Director of Marketing & Product Management, Cheryl Prior, PR & Events and Meg Parkin, Design & Marketing have all fallen into place with their roles as they work together to reward and recognise valuable ideas to design, create and steer the business to a successful future. Barry and Cheryl have more than 10 years’ experience working in the industry and took on graduate Meg just over a year ago. Meg brought new and complimentary marketing skills to the existing team.
Over the past 18 months, the Miller shareholders have invested significant funds into marketing which has allowed the team to produce an entire rebrand including a full office refurb and a new website. The success and benefits of this can be seen throughout and the refreshing new look has helped the company connect with a new audience and has also opened the opportunity to reach out to new potential customers.
“We are truly honoured and extremely proud to be recognised as ‘In-House Marketing Team of the Year. As a team we have worked relentlessly on the rebrand and as a result the benefit of this can be seen across the entire business,” commented Barry. “The North East Marketing Awards is a fantastic platform to showcase local talent, creativity and passion from across the North East and we feel very privileged to have been a part of that,” he added.
