MRM Group, the independently owned media services business, is pleased to announce the appointment of Rebecca Christensen to the newly created role of Group head of marketing.
A highly experienced marketing and communications professional, Rebecca joins the business from Edinburgh-based platform consultancy the lang cat where she spent three years as marketing director. Prior to that, she founded and ran an award-winning online community and marketplace for small independent businesses called Love from Indie Street.
Rebecca began her career at Standard Life where she was part of the media relations team that handled the successful flotation in 2006. She left Standard Life in 2007 to join Nucleus Financial where she spent just over six years as communications director, with responsibility for creating and delivering the marketing and communications strategy for the business.
Based in Edinburgh, Rebecca will take on responsibility for internal and external communications at MRM Group, working closely with the senior team to manage the development and delivery of an integrated marketing strategy aligned to the Group’s future ambitions and aspirations. She will join the senior executive team and report directly to Group CEO Andrew Appleyard.
Commenting on the appointment, Andrew Appleyard said: “Having known Rebecca for many years – and having had the pleasure of working with her during her time at Nucleus – I am absolutely thrilled she is now joining the team at MRM. She possesses a unique blend of experience and expertise that will have a hugely positive impact on the future look, feel and focus of the Group and the work we do.”
Commenting on joining MRM Group, Rebecca Christensen said: “It is a great opportunity and pleasure to be joining Andrew and the team. I have known the business and its people for many years and always been a big fan of the work they do and the way they go about doing it. I am very much looking forward to making the most of the opportunity that lies ahead and playing my part in the continued success of the Group.”
