Prize Promotion specialists The Black Tomato Agency have bolstered their team with the appointment of Chelsea Gurr as Business Development Manager.
Riding high after their success at the 2016 COGS Awards (the service provider recognition scheme administered by the Institute of Promotional Marketing) where they won Gold, Silver and Bronze in the Prize and Rewards category (an industry first), Black Tomato have sought to refresh their new business strategy, supported by this latest appointment.
Chelsea Gurr will be driving all new business and comes with a rich and varied client-focused background. Having been responsible for all new business at Buyapowa, the referral marketing software provider and Pearlfinders, the market intelligence platform, she has an unparalleled understanding of client needs and the most relevant solutions to their requirements.
As The Black Tomato Agency offer a range of services to agencies and brands alike, from prize creation to reward scheme management, an immediate understanding of client requirements and delivering against those needs are more important than ever.
Andrew Rae, Head of Promotional Marketing at The Black Tomato Agency says: “We have experienced a significant increase in work since the success of the COGS Awards and having Chelsea on board to help land and expand these opportunities is a great help.”
This most recent hire is a sign of the agency’s continuing drive to ‘create remarkable experiences that inspire’ and is in line with Black Tomato’s intent to hire creative and diverse talent from varied backgrounds in order to provide their clients with the most current and unique experiences available. Chelsea, a professional Trapeze artist and DJ, will bring something more than just business development skills to the Black Tomato family.
