Today for #Nationalstorytellingweek we’d like to share Michaela, Gradvert’s founder and Managing Director’s own story.
Michaela is proud to be a business woman in the North East and has ensured that Gradvert’s Head Office is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, at Hoults Yard – a creative hub of forward-thinking businesses. However, business activity does not stop there and Gradvert has satellite offices operating from Birmingham and London.
“What’s lovely about Gradvert is that we have our headquarters in Newcastle but we operate with clients right across the UK, so we a great insight into the regions. Our clients are also spread across the UK and it’s great to work in so many diverse industries”.
As the years have gone by Gradvert has grown into a company with strong values and a people centric attitude! With the team growing organically, strengths and skillsets are developing and Gradvert is proud to hold cross-sector expertise across a range of industries including: manufacturing, retail, transport and logistics.
Michaela is reflecting on Gradvert’s exciting story and how the business has developed over the years. Despite now working with some iconic global brands such as Multiplex and Net – a – Porter, she still has a passion for the North East. Michaela often refers to herself as a ‘proud Smoggie’ and was born in Middlesbrough, the original; ‘Ironopolis’ and birthplace of Captain Cook.
“As much as I love working in the North East, I think it is still important to have an external focus and to think more broadly than our own environment and network. It’s why having a diverse team is important – different perspectives matter”.
