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

As well as 3rd Party Marketing – known as 3PM – we work on new projects with a number of clients. This could involve a new website, brand position, a new product launch or an analysis of the business to yield strong growth.

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 Adele

We love how she focusses on teamwork and skills development and keeps our fast-paced environment running like a well oiled machine whilst in her spare time she still manages to do volunteer work as PRO for the Youghal Tidy Towns Committee.

The Story of Katie

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.

Katie’s 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.

Kate O Herlihy - Fuller Marketing - Marketing Consultancy Cork

Kate O’Herlihy is our media, promotions and events Marketing Executive and her skill sets include creative content generation, media liaison and outdoor promotions.  She graduated with a BA in Marketing from Cork Institute of Technology and her career experience since then has been significantly embedded in Events and Media promotion.  Her work with Cork’s RedFM provided an early introduction to Fuller Marketing and her talent for organisation, decision-making and the instinctive ability to seize and capitalise on ‘real-time’ promotion and marketing opportunities was evident from the outset.  Kate joined Cork’s RedFM in 2015 working as a Red Patroller and progressed to Marketing & Events Executive and continues to work in that capacity in addition to her role with Fuller Marketing.  As part of the team, she has added the sense of ‘energy’ that stems from working in the ‘live’ media environment and we love the drive and motivation that guarantees our clients the attention and results-focus they deserve.
