Get Ahead VA Welcomes New Regional Directors For Reading & Berkshire
Award-winning virtual agency Get Ahead VA is delighted to welcome a new regional director partnership for Berkshire and North Hampshire, to capitalise on strong economic activity in the region. Reading was recently named one of the UK’s top 5 cities for business in a report by Management Today and is a thriving economic hub.
A Talented Partnership
Kristy Roff and Suzanne Cox have joined Get Ahead VA as regional directors for Berkshire & North Hants, an area they have both lived and worked in for many years. Friends for more than a decade, they bring with them over twenty-five years of experience in both operational and commercial roles.
Suzanne comes from a corporate HR background, having worked for major local employers in IT and communications. Kristy spent eight years working for Global Radio in a variety of commercial roles and ten years at a leading IT consultancy managing client relationships.
Suzanne says: “In my corporate HR roles, I saw the attrition of highly skilled employees who ended up leaving because they couldn’t work flexibly around their families. As friends, Kristy and I had been talking for years about how we could find a way to work together and utilise all those skills that are being lost from the workplace in a positive way. We came across Get Ahead VA on social media and loved their flexible working ethos. When the chance to become regional directors came up, we knew it was the right opportunity.”
Kristy says: “We’re both really passionate about flexible working and how it can benefit businesses as well as individuals. Joining Get Ahead VA allows us to grow our own virtual assistant team in the Berkshire and North Hampshire area, offering flexible work to other people. In turn, our clients gain access to the skills and professionalism they need, but on a flexible basis, only paying for the actual hours they need.”
An Expanding National Network
Rebecca Newenham, founder and owner of Get Ahead VA says: “I am delighted to welcome Kristy and Suzanne to our team to run our Berkshire and North Hampshire region. They bring with them decades of corporate experience, as well as a passion for flexible and virtual working. With regional directors in Newcastle, Leeds, Bristol and Guildford as well as Berkshire & North Hants we have a presence in many key regional areas. I look forward to seeing our team continue to expand over the coming months and supporting all of our directors on their business journeys.”
