Stand celebrates with three new hires

Written by Nikki Peters

It doesn’t seem that long ago that Stand Agency was celebrating our third anniversary and third consecutive year of growth. We’ve started our fourth year off with a bang, hiring three new members to our brilliant team. The latest additions to Stand Agency are Nina Zamo, Veronica Chu and Holly Ellis.

Nina joins Stand as an Account Manager following four years’ work spanning policy, campaigning and PR at disability charity Papworth Trust. Nina led the policy and public affairs team to achieve a number of influencing wins on issues ranging from welfare reform and rail travel to housing and care. Nina will be bolstering the Stand Engage team, leading and developing campaigns.

Veronica comes to Stand as an Account Executive from a specialist professional and financial PR agency where she worked on a number of property and financial services accounts. Veronica has previously completed the Taylor Bennett Foundation Programme with Brunswick and now brings her PR expertise to our brilliant clients.

A recent graduate in journalism and creative writing, Holly impressed the team after joining as an intern in February 2015. Now in a permanent role as a Junior Account Executive, Holly supports Stand Crafted, delivering killer social media and content for clients.

Stand Agency has continued to enjoy strong growth in 2015, with a number of wins on both a retained and project basis. Like our clients, we love nothing more than challenging the market and our expanding team brings new ideas to ensure we continue doing just that. Join us in welcoming them should you speak to them in the near future.
