Introducing Ashleigh – New Marketing Manager at Prospect 13, a Leading Aberdeen Marketing Agency

Welcome our new Marketing Manager Ashleigh to Prospect 13!

We’re thrilled to announce that Ashleigh has joined our team at Prospect 13 as our new Marketing Manager. With a wealth of experience and a dynamic background, Ashleigh is set to bring a fresh perspective to our Aberdeen marketing agency.

Let’s get to know her a little better.

Tell us a bit about yourself, Ashleigh.

Hi, I am Ashleigh. I’ve just moved back home to Aberdeenshire after living in London for five years, where I worked as a Marketing Manager for a large commercial property company. Prior to my time in London, I lived in Australia for four years. So, you could say I took the slow road home!

What inspired you to pursue a career in marketing?

I started my career working as a Graphic Designer for Wood (or JP Kenny back then), before heading off on my travels. I’ve always been quite creative, and graphic design was a great way to make money doing something I loved. During my travels, I ended up falling into a recruitment role (must have been my ability to yap!) It was there that I developed a business acumen which sparked my interest in exploring marketing positions when I moved to London. Marketing allows you to commercialise creativity, which I love!

What excites you most about joining Prospect 13?

During the interview process, I loved the energy I got from Cerri and the team. Prospect 13 not only helps SMEs in the North-east but also encourages and supports young talent early in their careers. I am looking forward to getting stuck in, meeting clients, and learning what life is like agency side, whilst also sharing the knowledge I have picked up over the years.

What’s a marketing trend you think everyone should watch out for?

AI is getting a lot of airtime at the moment, but it’s not going anywhere. Not adopting AI would be comparable to writing an email without a laptop in the 2000s.

Share a fun fact about yourself that most people don’t know.

During COVID, I set up a side hustle, selling art prints on Etsy. You can check them out here: HameMadeCo – Etsy UK

If you could have dinner with any three people in the world, who would they be and why?

Oh, good question! As much as I would love to have someone famous there, I couldn’t think of anything better than having a roast dinner with my granny and granda who passed away a few years ago. But to liven it up, I’d invite Adele so we could have a singsong at the end.

Describe your marketing style in three words.

Not sure I have one, although I am sure my previous colleagues would say otherwise! To me, marketing is all about being adaptable, embracing change, and high standards.
