I am ready to help the team compete and win against any opposition; and with the outstanding creative solutions and multi-platform opportunities available, we will make sure our clients win big too.“
As well as being business development manager at STV, Jill’s previous experience includes account manager with GCAP and Emap and key account manager at GMG Radio where she won GMG Radio Sales Person of the Year for the Group in both 2008-2009 and 2009-2010. She also scooped Young Media Professional of the Year at the Fresh Awards in 2004.
