PR PROFESSIONAL OF THE YEAR
interactive investor's Head of PR Jemma Jackson, collects her Award from Headlinemoney's Head of Sales and Account Management Martin Quinn and Awards Host Marcus Brigstocke
WINNER: JEMMA JACKSON, INTERACTIVE INVESTOR
Many congratulations to interactive investor’s Jemma Jackson, who saw off extremely fierce competition to land this special award decided by the financial journalist community.
As Jemma explained in her submission, interactive investor’s PR presence had historically lagged behind its swift growth, and she “raised ii’s media profile with a strong consumer emphasis” in 2020 “challenging exit fees and high charges, sharing insights into how DIY investors might be faring, including the launch of ii’s private investor performance index and commissioning and co-authoring the Great British Retirement Survey”.
The work resulted in tangible progress, with ii’s coverage up 128% YoY. In the words of one journalist, “She's had a busy year... she's obviously an all-round great communicator”.
