The Promotion Company in Hull is pleased to announce that Joe Oldroyd has been appointed as a Director.
Joe initially started working with his family’s firm during the school holidays, helping out with the printing and packaging of promotional items and work wear.
Interested in a career as a sport journalist, he completed a degree in Journalism at The University of Leeds then moved back to East Yorkshire to work in the leisure industry and after two years, felt drawn to a position at The Promotion Company.
After joining the family firm in 2015, Joe progressed from Sales Assistant to Sales Manager, bringing a fresh perspective to the business. He says:
“The family aspect adds a really different dimension to working life, making it a lot more personal and I really enjoy working with my parents and the rest of the team.”
“As the business moves forward I am becoming a bigger part of the decision making and feel happy to be contributing to its even greater success.”
Angela, Director of The Promotion Company says:
“Joe hasn’t had any special dispensation as a family member, if anything he has worked even harder to prove himself as a very valuable asset to The Promotion Company. As both his parents and directors of the business, Richard and I are very proud and excited to watch Joe’s career roll out, we are both delighted that he has become a Director.”
