Growing the Growth Hub

Growing the Growth Hub

As the need to support businesses across Norfolk and Suffolk expands, so too does the Growth Hub Team.

Following the departure of Alan Cowie in August it was decided to split the Marketing, Communications and Events functions across two roles.

Alice Arnott joined the team as Marketing and Communications Coordinator in September and is responsible for leading marketing and communications activities to further promote the Growth Hub and engage with new and existing clients. With over 10 years marketing and events experience, Alice has worked for a number of organisations in varied industries across East Anglia.

Furthermore, an Events Coordinator role has been established and will be the responsibility of new recruit Sue Simmons, who will be developing, coordinating and promoting events and activities to increase engagements with new clients. Sue has over 20 years marketing and events experience and has worked for a number of organisations of all sizes in London and across East Anglia.

On the Business Advice side, Guy Gibson has joined the team as Business Growth Adviser for Norwich and North Norfolk.  Responsible for aiding businesses in their search for the most appropriate source of support, Guy will work with clients to deliver improved resilience, productivity and innovation. Guy has spent the last 10 years delivering business advice and training to start-ups. Prior to this he has run his own businesses and carried out a variety of roles in manufacturing, financial computing and consultancy.
