Meet the Team

Welcome to our team page, here you will find more information about those who work behind the scenes in the Girls in Marketing team to create amazing opportunities for aspiring and professional marketers across the world. 

Olivia Hanlon

Founder

I started Girls in Marketing after working freelance for a few years and starting an in-house marketing role. I saw the lack of girl power community within the marketing industry despite knowing there was the potential for one. That’s when Girls in Marketing was born.

Martha Mae

PR and Communications Coordinator

I help put together some kick-arse campaigns to raise awareness of our kick-arse community. I love cooking, reading and my ideal Friday night involves drinking a non-alcoholic gin while cleaning my kitchen. (I am so wild.) 

Lauren Evans

Content Coordinator

If you’re into lifestyle and travel content that makes you feel inspired, I’m your girl! After working abroad at Walt Disney World, I became even more obsessed with writing blogs of positivity over at Lauren’s Floating Lights. I love adventure, posting on Instagram and nights in with Netflix.

Debbie Mbuta-Mapasa

Event Coordinator

I love astrology, music and going to cocktail bars – who doesn’t love a good mojito (or five)? You’ll find me at any and all events doing my favourite thing, meeting new people and guessing their star signs! If you haven’t guessed already, yes, I am a Leo!

Lois Barker

Social Media Assistant

I’m a Devon girl currently studying Fashion Marketing at the University of Leeds. I have a love of eating out, a habit of drinking one too many cocktails and a passion for helping other women in the marketing industry!

Ruth Mbu​

PR Assistant

I love fashion, music and art. I’m passionate about making the industry more accessible for womxn, especially womxn of colour. Empowering the next generation of marketing leaders!
