The Garnish People
Angie Hammond - Director
Angie is the founder and Director of Garnish Marketing. She has spent over 15 years working within marketing departments for a variety of industries focusing on high end textiles predominately. After moving away from the textile industry and into a sales roles in the commercial furniture Industry and then Sales and Marketing Manager in the freight forwarding Industry it became apparent that small business really needed a dedicated marketing department to help them on a project by project basis. Garnish Marketing was formed in February 2006 and has been going strong ever since.
Using the analytical skills developed throughout employment, Angie has the ability to think outside the square on a creative yet logical level. Drawing on all her experience Angie offers common sense solutions in an ever increasingly confusing world. Business people are time poor, and quite often great operators, but when it comes to Marketing - get confused, we understand the need for a straight talking, no nonsense approach, which is what we delivers at Garnish.
Angie believes that good marketing is about the culmination of good ideas with sound planning and a creative spin.
Personally, Angie has two gorgeous little boys and a fabulous Husband, we spend lots of time hanging out with the kids. Angie likes running (10km is the latest distance) and eating good food and drinking great wine (or the odd Gin & Tonic).
