University of Huddersfield Sports Promotion and Marketing Graduate Grace Lenihan accepts game-changing role as our new Marketing and Communications Manager here at Huddersfield Community Trust.
Since leaving the University of Huddersfield Grace secured a 12-month contract with global sports brand, adidas as a Brand Activation Graduate Intern working with international sports retailers, Pro:Direct Sport and Sports Direct to launch key brand campaigns and was involved with the re-launch of the brands’ relaunch of the iconic Predator football boot.
At the Huddersfield charity, Grace will focus on developing and implementing a new marketing strategy. Grace said: “I’ve known Lisa for a number of years now and I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to re-join the team with their current position within the local community going from strength to strength. I’m thrilled to be moving to an in-house role and putting my passion for sports to good practice.”
Lisa Hewitt CEO of HCT commented: “I am very excited about our new appointment. Grace worked for the trust back in 2016 and created a great relationship with all staff and I know she will fit back into the team really well. Grace is extremely passionate about the trust and all our developments for 2018. We have an exceptionally eventful year ahead as we have reached our tenth birthday. We are hopeful to celebrate in style in July with heaps of activity going on both at The Zone and in the community.”
