Stephanie started her career in headhunting, working for Taylor Bennett before moving into the marketing and PR industry in 2003, specialising in the luxury travel and lifestyle sector for six years. In 2010 she left her position as Business Director at the travel PR agency Mason Rose to focus full-time on the marketing consultancy she co-founded in 2009, Cicada Marketing.
Later in 2010 Steph raced to the North Pole, becoming the fastest woman to have ever done so whilst raising £50,000 for Mencap. Following this she joined VCCP Partnership as Marketing and New Business Director and was later promoted to Group Chief Marketing Officer. During her time at VCCP the agency has been named Marketing magazine’s Agency of the Year in 2011, Campaign’s Agency of the Year in 2013 and has topped the industry’s most in-demand agency rankings for the past four consecutive years.
In September 2013 Steph joined the VCCP Management Team and in 2015 joined Chime’s Executive Management Team as Chief Marketing Officer.
