LinkedIn Profile

As Head of The Alternatives Flexible Panel, I help clients fast track their success by accessing our agile team of leading Interim Managers, contractors and consultants, with marketing, digtial and data skills. 

With my marketing and media industry experience, I have a deep understanding of evolving marketing needs, the challenges businesses face in the fast paced digital and data led marketplace, and the talent needed to drive success.  

My passion is in helping businesses and careers to grow and it is so rewarding when I find the right solution for both our clients and candidates.  

I also specialise in senior digital marketing talent. Some recent assignments I have completed include Head of Digital (FMCG), Global Digital Marketing Manager (FMCG), Digital Account Director (Agency) and Senior Project Director (Agency).

Prior to Alternatives, I spent 18 years in the global media industry; 10 years at media agencies in New York (MediaCom and Universal McCann) working with global brands such as L’Oreal, Coca-Cola, Sony, Cartier and VW/Audi and then returned to Ireland in 2009 and joined The Rational Group, a leading online gaming Company where I was responsible for Global Media.  

I bring a vast amount of international industry knowledge and expertise across media planning and buying, digital media and marketing, e-commerce and business intelligence. I have a Marketing degree from DIT, College of Marketing and Design and a Diploma in Digital Marketing from the DMI.

What you say

Joan has been instrumental in enabling me to realise my career goals. From explaining to her what I was looking for in my next move, she proactively went to market to seed my capabilities with prospective companies and ultimately found me exactly what I was looking for. Throughout the entire process she was very encouraging, responsive and I felt she had my back all along the journey. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Joan to anyone looking for their next career move. Without Joan's help, I know I would never have found the role I am now so happy to be in.

Joan is polite and professional in all her dealings. She listens to a recruitment brief and responds with well-chosen candidates rather than trying to fill round holes with square pegs! If you are recruiting in the area of digital marketing or agency then Joan definitely needs to be on your list of recruiters
