Meet Top Banana’s latest edition to team Manchester, Beccy Forshaw, our new Account Manager.
Having previously worked for Fresh and The Appointment Group, Beccy’s work history covers everything from planning events for Formula 1, coordinating global conferences in the technology and automotive sectors to planning incentive trips in Japan.
She’s even given Jason Mannford a lift to the train station after an event and has organised a zombie apocalypse!
We asked her why she decided to make the move to Top Banana, here’s what she said…
“Top Banana have a fantastic reputation in the industry, known for being creative, fun and investors in their employees. When I saw the opening of the northern office I knew I had to apply – the industry is so exciting in Manchester, and generally across the North and I wanted to be a part of Top Banana’s Manchester journey. Plus – the office here is fantastic and I’m still very connected to the Broome HQ meaning I always feel part of the wider team. I’ve been able to get stuck in from the get go with clients like DFS and Thornton’s and I can’t wait to help grow the client base up here”.
When asked what she’d say to others looking at joining Top Banana, Beccy commented “Do it! I’m absolutely loving it. I was really surprised by the number of people who have been here for 5/10/15 years – I think that’s really rare in our industry and it says a great deal about Top Banana”.
Marc Hazelden, who heads up our northern client base, comments ‘It’s great to have Beccy on board. With all of her experience she’s going to be a real asset to Top Banana and is already a great cultural fit. She’s a key component as we continue to grow and expand the Manchester office and client base and we know she’s going to wow both our existing and prospective clients’.
