VMA Group’s communications team develops with promotions in the Northern office
VMA Group, the global executive recruitment and professional development partner for corporate communications, investor relations and human resources professionals, is pleased to announce the further development of its communications team in the North. Julie Mazzei has been promoted to Managing Consultant to lead the Manchester based team and she has been joined by Mary Pidcock who took on the role of Consultant earlier this year. The team cover assignments in all communications disciplines, including external and internal communications, and across a broad range of industry sectors.
Julie has been a key figure within VMA Group’s Manchester based communications team since she joined in 2009 and her promotion to Managing Consultant sees her taking up a vital leadership role within the team. She has over 10 years’ experience in PR and communications gained through work in journalism and senior agency and in-house positions throughout the North West. As a result she has developed an extensive knowledge of the marketplace and a deep understanding of her clients’ needs. Her communications recruitment expertise span across a wealth of industries including financial services, professional services, consumer and healthcare. Julie takes over leadership of the team from Lucinda Barber who has recently moved to VMA Group’s Asia-Pacific team in Hong Kong.
Mary has been a valued asset to the team since she joined VMA Group in 2010. She originally worked within the communications practice in a support capacity before being promoted to Consultant earlier this year. Her role focuses on agency clients recruiting for positions at all levels as well as in-house clients within the consumer and retail sectors.
Julie Mazzei, Managing Consultant within VMA Group’s Communications practice said: “I am excited to be leading the communications practice as we build on VMA Group’s previous successes and expertise as the largest communications recruiters across the North of England and Scotland. I am also delighted that we have been able to develop and promote from within the team. Mary is already proving to be a great advisor for clients and candidates alike.”
