New leadership team for Gateshead’s NGI Solutions
NGI Solutions has revealed its new leadership team following the departure of James Ealey.
Based in Gateshead, NGI Solutions is the trading arm of NewcastleGateshead Initiative (NGI) and as a result all its profits are reinvested back into NGI to promote the North East and drive economic growth.
Kathie Wilcox, the former director of marketing and communications at NGI has been appointed director of NGI Solutions. Ian Thomas has been promoted to associate director and Jodie Balmer joins the agency as senior account manager.
Lucy Nichol has also joined as head of marketing and communications.
“We’re really proud of the breadth of experience and expertise that we have at NGI Solutions and our latest recruits have certainly bolstered the team as we gear up for future growth. Over the past five years, the business has developed substantially, with a host of new regional and national clients tapping into our insight-led research, marketing and PR services to support their own business aims; recent new clients include SSE, Newcastle United Foundation and Stockton Council,” said Wilcox.
“Looking ahead, this year is shaping up well with a fantastic team in place, some exciting new projects to get our teeth into and lots of ideas for progression in the pipeline.”
