Whilst the FIG team have been working from home throughout lockdown, making sure our clients’ marketing activity is on track, to budget and securing results, three of our team have been kept very busy indeed – but not with marketing.
FIG was thrilled to welcome three new babies to the FIG family recently, making it a grand total of 13 babies born whilst FIG has been in business, averaging out at one baby every two years!
Firstly, we said hello to Albie, who was born in December to Senior Account Manager, Nikita and her husband, Luke. This seriously stylish boy – who is as cute as a button – is a very welcome addition to the Pearson household, and already has two best (furry) friends, in French Bulldogs, Teddy & Leo, who some clients might remember meeting as they sometimes accompanied Nikita to the office to help liven things up a bit!
Secondly, baby Izzy was born in February to Studio Manager Callie, and her husband Mike. As one of our longest standing members of staff (she’s been here for 14 years), looking after a newborn will be a piece of cake for Callie, as there’s no one more organised and on the ball than she is. In fact, after being in charge of FIG’s designers, we’re sure maternity leave will be almost like a holiday in comparison.
And last month, Client Services Director, Cheryl and her partner, Mark, said hello to baby Jack, a very welcome brother for Grace. One of our hardest-working members of staff, Cheryl was working right up to the very end to make sure that all her accounts had thorough handovers and the Client Services team are very thankful for that.
FIG would like to extend our congratulations to Nikita, Callie and Cheryl, and we can’t wait to meet our newest (and cutest) Figsters as soon as it is safe for us to do so.
And as we have three members of staff off on maternity leave, we said hello to two new faces in the past six months to ensure we carry on offering a first-class marketing service to all of our clients. Sophie Noakes joined us as Senior Account Manager in October, whilst Liz Waterhouse came onboard in February as PR & Content Manager, and secured a potential readership of almost 2 million within the first week with her very first press release, so has most definitely hit the ground running. We’d also like to say a big thank you to our Senior Designer, Dave, who is acting Studio Manager in Callie’s absence.
