Specialist meetings and events PR and content marketing consultancy Mexia Communications has expanded its growing team with the appointment of highly experienced PR and marketing specialist Eveleen Hatch to the newly created role of Account Director.
Eveleen brings over 23 years of experience in PR and marketing to the team at Mexia and a further ten years in journalism. Her appointment comes during a time of significant growth for the Oxfordshire based B2B agency which specialises in the international meetings and events sector. Its ever increasing client base includes world class venues, destinations and event tech companies, including Twickenham Stadium, Lord’s Cricket Ground, RIBA Venues, Sadler’s Wells, Lausanne Tourism, Central Hall Westminster, The Royal College of Physicians and more.
“I am delighted to be joining the team at Mexia at this exciting time for the company,” commented Eveleen. “I hope to bring together my skills in journalism, PR, digital and marketing to further enhance the success of this award-winning agency. Being based in beautiful offices in the Oxfordshire countryside within easy reach of London is an added bonus and I’m looking forward to getting out and about and meeting clients soon.”
After training as a journalist and working in news and features for over 10 years, Eveleen moved into PR, gaining experience across a broad spectrum of sectors including Blue Chip press office roles, public sector, lifestyle, education, travel and B2B. She has also run her own PR consultancy Buzzword PR which later merged with an agency specialising in consumer travel and lifestyle which has helped her to understand the demands of a growing business.
Kursha Woodgate, Mexia’s Managing Director, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have Eveleen on board at Mexia at a time when we are expanding our client base and adding to our team. Her wealth of experience in such a diverse range of sectors, sound business knowledge, straightforward approach and creative skills will be a real asset to the business.”
Eveleen took up her post in April 2016 after working for almost two years as Marketing and Communications Manager at Oxford based independent day and boarding school Rye St Antony where she implemented a new marketing strategy which included press and PR, events, social media, marketing literature, branding, photography and more.
