Who are you?
Hello, my name is Mike Fitzgibbon. I joined 10 Degrees recently in the newly formed role as Marketing Manager.
Over the past few years the company has sustained fantastic growth. I was delighted, when offered the role, to be employee number thirteen, and the fifth new hire in the past twelve months.
During my twenty years in marketing I have always wanted to go “agency side” and after working for companies such as 3M, Gartner, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, and most recently an Oracle Platinum Partner, I thought now was the time to make the switch.
When I saw the vacancy for the role, I was immediately drawn in by its warm and friendly nature. A strong emphasis is put on employees well-being, mental health and work life balance, with a lot of effort going in to give back to the community.
What was your first day at 10 Degrees like?
On the morning of my first day it was a mixture of excitement and blind panic!
Within two minutes of being in the office, all of my first day nerves disappeared. I received a warm welcome and a smiling face from everyone there. My new stand up desk, laptop and coffee cup were all waiting for me.
Everyone made me feel so welcome, no question has been too much, and everyone has spent time explaining to me what they do. What struck me the most was everyone’s excitement and enthusiasm about what they are doing, and more importantly, what more they can do.
What are you here to do?
I am responsible for taking the lead with all of our marketing activities and driving new business.
As a newly created role I am very much looking forward to drawing on my enterprise experience and working with the whole team on devising and implementing integrated marketing campaigns to help achieve sustained growth.
We also have a very loyal client base, so I am looking forward to speaking with them all soon to understand what makes 10 Degrees so important to them.
