Creative communications agency Purple Sprout has taken on two sales executives to support the growing business.

Anna Haycock, 35, from Stafford, has joined the team as a field sales executive, with over 11 years’ sales experience. She will be selling for the highly successful lifestyle magazine, Staffordshire Living, as well as promoting Purple Sprout’s PR and marketing services, such as: social media, print and design, website building and copywriting.

The mother of two said: “I’ve been in media a while and I’ve seen Staffordshire Living everywhere. I have seven years of experience in media sales, so it’s great to be working for a magazine. I’m also looking forward to promoting the company’s range of digital marketing services.”

Football fan Anna has come from a similar role at Trinity Mirror and worked in the motor trade before that.

Giselle Buckley will be bringing 20 years’ experience in advertising to her new role as sales executive. The 43-year-old from Stafford said: “I’m looking forward to this fresh opportunity in a new area working for a quality magazine.”

Giselle, whose hobbies include yoga and walking, has come from a previous role at Midlands News Association, working on regional titles like the Express and Star newspaper.

David Mellenchip, sales director, said: “Anna and Giselle will bring valuable experience to the business and they will be an important part of its growth moving forward.

“It’s an exciting time for the company; we have expanded Staffordshire Living to cover Shropshire, we are preparing to relaunch the magazine’s website in October and 2019 will see a new lifestyle publication covering other parts of the UK.

“Meanwhile, the PR and marketing side of the business continues to grow significantly, allowing us to boost our client list and our services.”
