New PR and Marketing Executive for GBH Ramps
Local company, GBH Engineering Ltd is delighted to introduce the newest member to the team, Lisa Illingworth. As Public Relations and Marketing Executive, Lisa will be shedding light on the world of GBH Ramps.
Lisa has worked for GBH Ramps in an admin role when it was a fledgling company. After obtaining a BA (hons) in Communication at Bournemouth University, she worked in the head office of various lifestyle retailers. Now a few years and numerous skate parks later she has adhered the call to give GBH Ramps a voice in the extreme sports media forum.
Lisa commented: â€˜I am delighted to be returning to GBH Ramps to help develop their brand awareness, and looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead. The company is at an exciting stage with a number of showcase parks due to be implemented in the forthcoming months.
Designs for these are currently under wraps, but I can say they will set new standards for design in the field of free access facilities â€“ both in steel and concrete. This is largely thanks to input from GBH Project Managers, Jim Chambers and Russ Holbert, working with dedicated Graphics Designers, Sam Reynolds and Andrew Wood (all skaters and riders themselves). The cool thing about working for GBH is that the entire team have a real passion for what they do, and knowing that they can make a huge difference to the lives of young people makes it a wicked place to work.’
GBH Ramps, based in Canford Cliffs Village, has installed hundreds of skate parks across the UK. The latest generation of GBH parks has a dedicated Project Manager, who is also an experienced skater, working with the local skaters to ensure that they get to put their mark on their local skatepark, somewhere that they are likely to spend many hours of their free time. This way, the end result is a success story for everyone involved.
