As part of its expansion plans for 2014, leading international maritime PR and Publishing company, Elaborate Communications, has announced a number of staff changes.
Karen Martin moves into the new role of Group Sales Manager, with effect from January 1, 2014 and is joined by two new sales representatives.
Karen, who has become a familiar figure within the maritime publishing industry since joining Elaborate more than two years’ ago, will continue to manage the advertising sales on Ship Management International (SMI) as well as developing and maintaining sponsorship opportunities for the forthcoming Maritime, Logistics & Energy Fortnight in June 2014 (part of the International Festival For Business) and the next London International Shipping Week in 2015. She will also play a pivotal role in a number of exciting new ventures scheduled over the next few months.
In addition Karen will take line management responsibility for Elaborate’s team of sales staff working on the company’s range of global maritime titles including The Ship Supplier. The team has been boosted by the arrival of sales representatives Nicky Thorn, to work on SMI, and Shani Wortley, on Ship Supplier.
Sean Moloney, Elaborate Managing Director, said: “I am delighted to recognise Karen’s dedication to Elaborate and the shipping industry with this well-deserved promotion. Karen and her team will be vital to the myriad of sponsorship and sales initiatives we will be working on this year.
I would like to congratulate Karen and wish her every success in her new role. In addition I am pleased to welcome these new staff to our growing team. We look forward to a productive 2014.”
