We know a thing or two about growth – it is integral to our business and our clients. But our growth does not stop there; we are constantly growing our team of digital marketing specialists, like our new Account Manager, Sam Stimson!
Hi Sam, welcome to the lab! How would you define your new role and past experience?
My role as an Account Manager at Growthlabs is to work with our clients to help them achieve their marketing goals, understand the key role marketing plays and help them with everything from a logo design through to running all aspects of a digital marketing activity – my role is to make our clients’ lives easier.
My background is in marketing management and working with agencies, freelancers, and in-house teams. I have worked in marketing for 15 years and had the great privilege to work in all areas, from traditional print media through to social media management.
What’s your favourite thing about working at Growthlabs?
I get to work with an incredibly talented team of individuals, and we get to showcase our collective skills every day by working with clients to plan and execute exciting projects from concept through to completion.
What excites you the most about Account Management?
From paid marketing campaigns to a brand-new website launch and everything in between, every day can be a challenge, but it is also an adventure. I love the diversity of work and the variety of clients we assist and advise in their marketing journey with us. Every day is different – it is always busy, and I love that!
What advice would you give your younger self?
Never stop learning! Teach yourself and learn from others around you. If it interests you, pick the brains of your colleagues and absorb as much information as you can. Don’t forget to share your own skills!
When I’m not at the lab, I’ll probably be…
Walking my chocolate Labrador, playing at the beach with my son, at a yoga retreat or with my head in a travel magazine planning my next overseas adventure (in my attempt to tick off a few of my ‘must sees’ every year). I love to be outdoors and the next things on my list are to learn to paddleboard and visit Machu Picchu.
Sam and our wider team of digitally-savvy specialists are here to grow your business – so what are you waiting for? Step into the lab!
