Inside Spring PR: Meet Abbie

April 30, 2019 / Abbie Baynes  / 

Meet Abbie Baynes, one of our Account Executives who predominantly looks after the Hydro Flask, Reima and LifeStraw brands. She’s been with Spring since joining us as a Digital Marketing Apprentice four years ago. We’d describe her as our reliable rock – hardworking and dedicated with a bubbly fun side. How would she describe us? Let’s find out.

What brought you to Spring PR all those years ago?

“I was just about to go to university to study marketing but was struggling to come to terms with three more years of education and having to quit my part-time job to do so. Much to my parents’ dismay, I looked into alternative options and found that I could do a higher-level apprenticeship which would give me the best of both worlds. That’s when I came across Spring PR. I loved the idea of working in a small, friendly team and a business that was growing with room for me to develop. 

 “They were looking for someone to do digital marketing whilst attending college. I remember being terrified when I pulled up, dressed in my mum’s brand-new shirt (sorry, mum!) for my first interview. Thankfully, Stephanie liked me enough to hire me (well, she hasn’t said otherwise yet!) and so my marketing career began.”
