New appointment for expanding marketing agency

Newcastle based specialist marketing agency, Cal Partners, is growing its team with the appointment of marketing executive, Marianne Carey.

Marianne, an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Marketing, joins the award-winning agency with over 5 years’ experience in marketing and communications in professional services and the maritime sector.  She will work with the wider Cal Partners team, made up of CIM Chartered Marketers, to support its growing nationwide and international client base with marketing strategy, digital marketing, content creation, social media management and events.

Following a first-class events management degree, Marianne began her career at a Newcastle-based PR agency before spending three years in the marketing department of commercial law firm, Mincoffs Solicitors. Most recently, Marianne held the position of Marketing and Communications Executive at the Port of Tyne, coordinating the organisation’s overall marketing and communications strategy and managing a number of large-scale campaigns and events in the renewables, logistics and maritime innovation space.

Commenting on her appointment, Marianne said: “It’s such an exciting time to be joining the Cal Partners team and I can’t wait to hit the ground running. I’m really looking forward to sharing my in-house marketing and communications experience with the agency’s incredible portfolio of clients and helping to contribute to the team’s ongoing growth and success.”

Chris Lucarelli, director at Cal Partners, commented: “The team and I are delighted that Marianne has joined us at such an exciting time for Cal Partners. During this period of economic uncertainty, our offer of working as an experienced, pragmatic, multi-disciplined and cost-effective outsourced marketing team has never been more in demand. The combination of Marianne’s previous experience of working in an agency, with professional services and more recently in the renewables and maritime space, dovetails perfectly with the work we are delivering for our clients and her appointment provides a solid basis for our continued growth.”
