York-based PR and digital agency, The Partners Group, is celebrating as director Monica Green marks 20 years with the company.
Monica joined Partners from a corporate and financial PR agency in 2001 as an account director, and was part of the management buyout team in 2006. During her time with the firm, she has worked with a wide range of companies across the manufacturing, building products and construction sectors.
Talking of the anniversary, Monica commented, “I’ve been extremely lucky to work with great people at Partners as well as with clients who have made working together rewarding. These 20 years have not been without challenges, but I’m tremendously proud of what we have achieved.
“The buyout was a pivotal moment for me as I’d always wanted to run an agency. It was a big leap from being a member of the team to being a business owner. It’s one that took me a bit of time to adjust to, but my business partner Karen Tinkler and I complement each other brilliantly. I’d say she’s the heart of the business and I’m the head. Our focus has been to develop a strong team as well as diversify and grow our client base.”
As well as her work with Partners, Monica has been national chair for the Association of Women in Property and still sits on the regional committee, which aims to inspire and support women in a male-dominated industry. Further to that, Monica gives time to working with employee-volunteering charity York Cares on its community projects.
Monica is the latest member of the team to celebrate this milestone at the company. Fellow director Karen Tinkler has spent more than 20 years with the firm as has Senior Account Manager Hannah Trinder whilst receptionist Nicola Neilson is the longest serving member notching up 26 years.
Established in 1988, The Partners Group works with clients in the manufacturing and engineering, professional services, food processing, building products, and property and construction sectors throughout the UK, providing PR, digital and communications services.
