Drum roll, please… A massive warm welcome to Adam Pescod who joined the StrategiQ family in March as Content Manager!
A little history about Adam:
Adam graduated from the University of Reading in 2009 with a BA Hons in Politics and International Relations and qualified as a journalist in 2011. He kicked off his journalism career as a ‘pubs and beer’ reporter for the Publican’s Morning Advertiser (not bad work if you can get it!) and moved to sunny Suffolk from Surrey in 2013 to live with his university sweetheart and now wife, Bex.
He spent the next few years working his way up the ladder from Feature Writer to Editor at CE Media, a fast-growing business publisher, and put his beer experience to use during a six-month spell doing PR for Greene King. When the time was right, Adam moved on to fintech company Fleximize, where he stayed as Content Manager until starting with us here at StrategiQ. He’s now just waiting for us to land a brewery client and he’s all set!
So, what does Adam do when he’s not managing content like Superman?
In his own words, he is…
“a keen, but ultimately unsuccessful golfer, a long-suffering Chelsea fan, a serial reviewer (in the top 30 reviewers in Ipswich on TripAdvisor) and a bit of a holiday addict – in the past couple of years: Dubrovnik, Montenegro, Sicily, Lisbon, Seville, New York, Boston, Brussels and Dublin, to name a few”.
A self-proclaimed foodie, Adam also loves Suffolk for its abundance of open space for long walks. And, for anyone who’s wondering, his surname means ‘pea bag’ (true story). How about that for a Tinder profile?!
Here are a few words about why Adam joined StrategiQ:
“After sitting down with Andy and hearing his vision for StrategiQ, I saw a great opportunity to develop my own content marketing expertise in an exciting, fast-paced environment, as well as bring extra experience and value to the company. I was hugely impressed by the calibre of StrategiQ’s clients and the rate at which the company had grown in such a short space of time. The overall culture of the company was also really appealing. I’m excited to see where we go from here.”
Welcome to the family, Adam!
