Hope Capital has announced the appointment of Emily Crowe as PR and Social Media Executive and Kevin Broughton as Graphic and Web Designer to join its marketing team.
The specialist short-term lender has experienced an extremely successful period, with significant growth in enquiries and completions since the easing of the first lockdown. As a result, Hope Capital has recruited Emily and Kevin to continue with the company’s expansion strategy and to help raise brand and product awareness to brokers and borrowers.
Prior to working at Hope Capital, Emily worked at a leading PR agency, with clients from a diverse range of sectors. Emily has also achieved a first-class honours degree in Public Relations and Media Studies and is currently studying a Digital Marketing MSc, to build on her current skills and knowledge of the growing industry.
In her new role, Emily will develop, implement and manage the positive image of Hope Capital, as well as communicate key messages to stakeholders within the industry. In addition, Emily will also oversee the company’s social media accounts, producing compelling content, engaging with brokers and clients and promoting the overall business.
Commenting on her appointment, Emily Crowe, said: “I am really excited to be appointed to the role of PR and Social Media Executive at Hope Capital. The skills and expertise of the team, coupled with their passion and motivation, is excellent and I look forward to supporting the company in the future as we continue to go from strength to strength.”
Kevin is joining Hope Capital with a wealth of experience after previously working in graphic design and web development for over 20 years. With the skills and knowledge Kevin has gained in his previous positions, including his most recent role as Senior Graphic Designer, Kevin is well equipped to hit the ground running.
At Hope Capital, Kevin will manage graphic design and web development projects, ensuring deadlines are met within the fast-paced working environment.
Kevin Broughton commented: “My approach to each new design project is to create the most aesthetically appealing, professional work within the solid parameters of functionality, usability and accessibility.
“I’m really pleased to be joining the team at Hope Capital and am looking forward to bringing my skills, expertise and energy to the table.”
The announcement of Emily and Kevin joining the team, shortly follows the appointment of Keiran Holmes and Mike Watson, who joined Hope Capital in September to strengthen the underwriting team. In addition, Hope Capital also kick-started an apprenticeship scheme in September and welcomed two new apprentices, Jade Thompson and Elle Hazlett, to futureproof its growing business.
