Epona Marketing has won a new contract to work on Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire’s Community Renewal Fund project.
The Cheshire-based consultancy will be one of the business advisors helping to deliver the project, to boost jobs and encourage growth in the region.
Epona was founded by Alison Duckworth, the former Director of Tourism at Marketing Cheshire.
“The opportunity to assist businesses who need a guiding hand, have big ambitions for growth or just need some on the ground support, is what we do best. This, coupled with being able to make a difference to businesses whilst working in the beautiful Peak District, is just a delight,” she said.
For the project, Epona has partnered with Caroline Sanger-Davies, previously Chester Zoo’s Marketing Director.
“I’m really pleased to join Alison and Epona for this project. With our combined experience we bring significant sector-specific acumen, alongside drive and enthusiasm to support the recovery of the visitor economy,” she said.
Jo Dilley, Managing Director of Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire added:
“Epona’s knowledge and experience within the sector make them a great partner to assist with the delivery of our Derbyshire Accelerator Programme funded by the Community Renewal Fund. They can ‘hit the ground running’, work with multiple stakeholders, and understand the outputs required to deliver this project in a short timeframe, and we are looking forward to working with them.”
The Community Renewal Fund project runs until 30 June 2022.
