JOB: Dawn Shakespeare appointed
Dawn Shakespeare is the new Marketing and Events Manager at the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers (FPS).
Ms Shakespeare boasts extensive marketing and events industry experience, and has previously worked for Midlands Oil Distributor, Evesons Fuels and NWF Fuels.
She is tasked to strengthen the overall offering of the FPS to oil distributors across the UK and Ireland.
Already showing her mark on FPS EXPO, Ms Shakespeare has sold over 85% of stand space with four months still to go to the exhibition.
“The FPS plays a crucial role in enhancing and promoting the work oil distributors do and I am really looking forward to driving the events programme forward, championing the FPS membership and creating new products and services for our growing membership,” she said.
“Through this we will be looking to increase our membership, especially in Ireland.
“With increased numbers, we can establish an even stronger industry presence, promote successes and address challenges and issues to best effect.
“I am also looking to develop further our communication to the wider community in which we operate and I will be spearheading this in 2014.”
Mark Askew, Chief Executive of the FPS, added: “Dawn is a fantastic new addition to our growing team.
“She brings a vibrant approach and a raft of new ideas. Increased demand and interest in the FPS and the success of FPS EXPO the oil distribution industry’s key annual event, has seen an increase in the services we are now offering to members.
