pro-manchester is delighted to announce further expansion to its team with new Membership & Engagement Manager, Katherine Barr.
Katherine joins pro-manchester from luxury skincare brand La Prairie, where she was quickly promoted to Business Manager after a hugely successful first year with them.
After living in China for two years working with the British Council and studying Asia Pacific Studies & Mandarin at Uclan, Katherine is fluent in Mandarin.
She brings with her a wealth of sales knowledge from the retail world and hopes to use what she’s learnt in her new role.
Of her appointment, Katherine said: “I am delighted to take up this new role at pro-manchester. It’s a completely different challenge for me, and one that I’m already really enjoying. I’m looking forward to applying what I’ve learnt in retail to promote pro-manchester’s great products, which are hugely beneficial to businesses across the North West.”
Katherine has already settled well at the Spinningfield-based business development organisation.
Deputy CEO, Sam Booth said: “Katherine’s appointment highlights how exciting of a time it is for pro-manchester at present. The team is now made up of nine individuals who are excellent at what they do and I’m really looking forward to seeing the organisation grow and develop alongside their wealth of knowledge. Katherine has hit the ground running and I can already tell she is going to be hugely successful in this role.”
pro-manchester members will be able to meet Katherine at the upcoming Annual Dinner. The black tie event, which is held at The Midland Hotel on Thursday 21st June will celebrate a fantastic year for pro-manchester, which has seen them expand the team with three new members of staff as well as a great series of events, including the Made in Manchester Awards, the Economics Conference and the Business Conference.
