Medi8 is delighted to announce Rachel Knapper as the latest addition to its growing team.  Rachel, who recently graduated from Staffordshire University with an Upper Second Class Degree in Marketing Management, will be working across all areas of the business.

In addition to Rachel’s appointment, Emma Ballard, who has been with Medi8 since 2008, takes up the position of Digital Content Manager.  Her new role will allow her to focus on the development of integrated social media strategies as well as delivering online content and digital exposure for the company’s clients.  Emma has also recently taken up a virtual advisory role working with England Golf on the development of women and girls’ golf.

As the business enters its eighth year, Medi8’s portfolio of clients includes companies in the equestrian, golf, motorcycling, outdoors, and sailing industries.  This latest appointment is designed to strengthen the existing team and meet the changing needs of the media landscape as Nicole Wheatley, Director explains,

“Many people know us as specialists in their field, but we are in fact specialists in many niche sports.  Rachel’s knowledge and experience will undoubtedly help us maintain our position but her appointment also enables us to develop Emma’s role and deliver creative, integrated solutions for our clients across all media.”

To accommodate the company’s growth, and Bonny (the new company mascot), Medi8 has also relocated to new offices: Brampton House, 10 Queen Street, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, ST5 1ED Tel: +44 (0) 1782 664856 E:
