Vanessa Pickford

Job title: Account Manager

Born in: Chippenham, Whiltshire

Qualifications: CIM Professional Diploma in Marketing and…International Hockey Honours

History: Originally, from a retail and manufacturing background, Ness has 13 years event management experience – a compelling proposition if you are to entrust your event with us.

Experience: Thrives on the variety of the event role, the challenge of events and has a passion to execute events to the highest standard. Great work ethic and never lets anyone down. To switch off, Ness travels the world on weird holidays that would worry Ray Mears (last holiday was Ibiza… rather tame by Ness’s standards!).

Biggest challenge: Working with Brian and Nigel! But outside the office, coping with acute tonsillitis while managing a 10-day skiing incentive in Ischgl.

Tags: event management, team management, negotiations, process definition, supply chain management and account management.

Something you didn’t know: Grew up on a farm and is a pro tractor-driver. She also loves brainstorms and watch out, has a warped sense of humour!
