Get to know Linsey
Can you describe in a few sentences what your job involves?
My job is to ensure our clients receive exceptional service, and we achieve excellent results both for our clients and Storm ID. This includes scoping and defining programmes of work, understanding our clients' objectives and challenges and overall commercial responsibilities.
What career path did you take to get here?
When I left university (with a degree in Neuroscience) I was offered two jobs on the same day. One as a paediatric cardiac physiologist and the other as an account executive at a 'disruptive technology marketing' agency in Bristol. I took the latter as it sounded more fun!
What challenges you most in your role?
Keeping up to date with a constantly evolving digital landscape. Storm has changed a huge amount since I joined! The complexity of the digital services we develop, our approach to projects and our capabilities have grown tremendously, and that is challenging.
What makes you excited to come to work?
The same thing that challenges me – I'm always learning. I'm also very proud of the work we do at Storm and that many of the services we create genuinely do make a difference.
How do you find the work-life balance at Storm?
I have two young boys aged 4 and 6 and have two very distinct roles in my life – work is a nice break! Storm has always been very flexible with me starting and finishing at varying times so I can do the nursery/school run.
How have you grown at Storm?
During my time at Storm I've progressed from Account Manager to Client Services Director, and recently joined the Board. I also got married and had two children during that time. In many ways I feel like I've grown up at Storm.
Do you have any hidden talents or interesting hobbies?
Not sure it's interesting but I have a growing selection of succulents on my desk and enjoy cross-stitch to avoid looking at screens all the time.
