Gareth Williams, Research Account Manager, and Carol Haselden, Operations Manager

Diva has started 2016 with two new appointments.

We’ve hired 29-year-old Research Account Manager Gareth Williams and Harrogate-born Operations Manager Carol Haselden.

Originally from Worcester, Gareth further strengthens Diva’s expertise in behaviour change, social research and sustainable development, having worked in London at a leading bench research agency.

He joins a research team that scooped the 2015 Use of Customer Insight Award at the Chartered Institute of Marketing’s Northern Conference for our work with Darlington Borough Council.

Carol enters a newly created role that will see her support the day-to-day running of Diva, with skills across office management, recruitment and business operations.

Amanda Pearce, Director at Diva Creative, said: “Last year was incredibly successful for us, with some great new commissions and numerous award wins.

“Welcoming Carol and Gareth is a great way to start 2016 and adds new skills, experience and expertise to an already strong and versatile team.

“The new Operations Manager role also reflects how much we have grown since we opened our doors back in 1997, and will allow us to maintain our high-quality level of service as we expand further.”
