Solutions are delivered in a focused way: What is the message? How should it be conveyed? Who to? And when?

The Story of Sheila

Sheila Kelleher - Fuller Marketing - Marketing Consultancy Cork

Sheila Kelleher is Strategy Director with Fuller Marketing. She holds a BA (Hons) Business & Economics and as part of the Fuller team is focused on delivering results to meet their client’s needs, identifying growth potential and helping to provide marketing and business solutions to their commercial challenges.

She brings vast experience having worked for 17 years with an Australian owned multinational PLC as General Manager EMEA and latterly as General Manager – Worldwide Gold Mining, Developing Markets & EMEA Operations. She led high performance teams across Manufacturing, Sales, New Business Development, Marketing and Distribution and strategic change initiatives including the development of a new WW business division targeting emerging markets in MEA, CALA and APAC growing it to revenue levels of >US$100m per annum.

Kelleher says “My industry experience on strategic planning, international business development, sales and channel distribution has already come into good use and if I can save any client from the pain of making some of the mistakes I did along the way, then that’s all the better.”

Prior to that, Sheila’s early career experience was shaped by her work in the Cork International Choral Festival, UCC, Cork Enterprise Board and Cork Corporation. From the outset, Fuller Marketing has the right elements, the ‘spark’ and the experience to add value to businesses that require short-term project and campaign support, through to 3rd Party Marketing (3PM) support services, where we act directly as the marketing department as an extension to a business or as an arm of an existing department tasked with specific objectives. ”

We work with a diverse client base, we love what we do and look forward to doing more!”

 The Story of Katie

Katie Nagle - Fuller Marketing - Marketing Consultancy Cork

Katie Nagle is our ‘go-to’ Marketing Executive when we need to build and execute SEO, display ad campaigns, digital communications and monthly report analytics for our client base.  She is social media savvy, with an innate sense for identifying the style of messaging that reaches the core target audience.  Her career experience since completing Business Management in Hospitality in Cork Institute of Technology led her to junior managerial roles in 5* luxury Hotels, but she found her true calling with Fuller Marketing.  Her experience and training in the leisure and hospitality sector instilled an appreciation for high standards of professional service, attention to detail and the softer skill sets required to work well with people. Katie excels in creative campaign development and adopts a hands-on role in AV project work.  She is a considerate, consultative and responsible team member who thrives on the success of client campaigns.  And if that wasn’t proof enough of her conscientious nature, she has also served as a Poll Clerk for all Referendums and Elections since 2012.
