Shiny new Iris people

Posted: June 18th, 2010 in News, People

We’ve strengthened our team with some new people in the last couple of months and they’re already fitting in nicely. Let’s take a closer look at them…

First up, Fran Kay our new Senior Account Manager. Fran comes to us from a design agency in Nottingham, where she worked on brands like E.ON, Hanson and BT. Before that Fran worked client-side and got to see a bit of the world, presenting to clients in America, Hong Kong, China, Europe etc. She studied Sociology at Bristol University and also has a Professional Diploma in Marketing (CIM). After 6 years in Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire-born Fran reckons it’s“reet good” to be back in God’s county: “I’ve already been told my accent’s getting stronger… and I’ve only been here 5 days!”. When she’s not working at Iris, she can often be found in a tent in a muddy field. A seasoned Glastonbury Festival goer, Fran tries to get to lots of gigs and even travelled to Berlin to see Kings of Leon last summer.

And then there’s, Ian Parr, our new web developer who says he is “just happy to be here!”. He says there’s nothing interesting to know about him but we beg to differ. Not only does Ian have a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science and four years experience in design agencies as a web developer, plus ten years building for the web but in his spare time he’s also a director for a charity. Catch21 Productions, is a Westminster-based independent video-producer with the aim of increasing political engagement among young people. Ian is responsible for online content and distribution systems including the provision of online video. He’s already worked with the Independent newspaper, Parliament, and the Community Channel.
