Hollie Hylton, 23, joins the growing Creo ranks as Junior Client Partner, bolstering the agency’s PR team.
Founded in Sunderland in 2014, Creo brings creativity to communications delivering comms campaigns to a wide range of clients across the UK.
Hollie graduated from Northumbria University this year with a BA Hons degree in English Language Studies. After completing her studies in May, she signed up for a spell of work experience at Creo, before securing a full-time position.
With four years’ experience in linguistics, Hollie is a talented and articulate communicator. These skills were put to great use working in primary schools as a teaching assistant for the past year, before deciding to shift her expertise to comms.
Speaking about the new role, she said: “I’m so excited to be part of the team and grateful for the support of everyone at Creo. It was daunting to leave the security of university, but since joining, I’ve already gained additional skills and learnt so much.
“I’ve jumped in with both feet and love working across a host of projects. I can’t wait to see what I can achieve at Creo and grow my skills and experience with help from the team.
“Working at Creo is exceeding all of my expectations. I look forward to something new each day and feel lucky to have the chance to kickstart my career in a truly amazing environment.”
Hollie is Creo’s third new hire this year, as the agency client portfolio grows. Her immediate focus is on the manufacturing sector, but she is already an integral part of teams working with local authorities, finance providers and tech businesses.
“There’s so much variety in the work I’ve done so far,” she added. “It’s what I find so exciting about the job – no two days are the same. I’m looking forward to my future at Creo.”
Louise Bradford, Managing Director of Creo Comms, said: “Hollie fit in immediately with the team and we’re delighted to welcome her on board and help her fulfil her professional goals.
“Her enthusiasm and commitment shine through and she’s quickly become a trusted member of our fantastic Creo squad. We share Hollie’s excitement about her appointment and can’t wait to see her develop.”
