Member of:

Suzanne is responsible for all Marketing and Communications activity. In practice this covers the full spectrum of activity including creating content strategy, crafting thought leadership articles, PR and media activity, managing all aspects of the website through to social media management and campaign activity. A qualified accountant and marketer Suzanne has significant commercial and marketing expertise having headed up large marketing departments at blue chip companies such as Barclays and Allianz.

Having successfully managed her own strategy and marketing consultancy business for years, at the end of 2019 she made the decision to venture into the unchartered territory of the public sector believing that with an upbringing and family firmly rooted in the valleys it was time to say goodbye to working in London and the South East and use her skills to help progress Welsh initiatives and causes.  A Jo Wicks HIIT fanatic the majority of her spare time is devoted to fitness and outdoor activity.
