Genesis responds to unprecedented growth with new appointment
As PLMR Genesis continues to expand to meet continued client growth, Michelle Emmerson-Grey has joined the company as a Senior Account Manager.
Michelle has substantial business to consumer and stakeholder management experience in the arts and culture sector, extensive event and promotional expertise and a wealth of communications experience, gained from a varied background across internal communications in the telecoms industry and senior leadership marketing roles in arts and education.
As an active advocate of digital transformation in arts marketing, Michelle balanced the varying demands of promoting a wide programme of festivals and visiting company work, alongside creation of original promotional materials for in-house theatre productions and nationwide theatrical tours, such as Once the Musical (New Wolsey Theatre).
Michelle’s most recent role saw her relaunching the Mercury Theatre in Colchester following an £11.3m extensive refurbishment; publicising the re-opening season, launching a new timetable of weekly community classes, and expanding the commercial offer of the hospitality, workspace, conference and events elements of the venue.
Michelle is passionate about the provision of accessible PR and marketing materials across all sectors and the benefits that small changes in widening accessibility can bring to every business. As Head of Communications for leading theatre consortium Ramps on the Moon, Michelle gained vast experience in raising awareness and attitudes to access for D/deaf and disabled artists, creatives and audiences.
Michelle said: “I’m delighted to join PLMR Genesis. I have known the company by reputation in wider business circles for a long time and worked alongside many companies who are huge advocates of the impact that PLMR Genesis has made.
