Office Friendly are pleased to announce the appointment of its new Business Development Manager, Lyndsay Pitchley.

Lyndsay is the second addition to the sales team since April and has been brought in to raise the profile of Office Friendly’s brands and programmes in the local area as they continue to grow and develop. These include KascAid, Office Friendly’s in-house creative agency, the recently launched Weaver Social Sustainability Programme, and the Pioneer Learning and Mentoring Programme.

Lyndsay brings with her a vast array of experience as an entrepreneur and businesswoman across the South Yorkshire region, and has a strong track record in mentoring and developing businesses and strategies.

Lyndsay previously held the position of Madam Mayor of Rotherham and raised a record amount of funds for local charities. During that post, she led a trade delegation to China on behalf of the British Embassy and has also worked extensively for mental health charity Mind as a Business Development Officer for Barnsley and Rotherham. More recently, Lyndsay won the International Athena Women in Business Award for Leadership.

“I am excited to be joining the Office Friendly team and I am looking forward to taking the brands of KascAid, Pioneer and Weaver out into the local marketplace,” said Lyndsay of her appointment.

“I have lots of knowledge, experience and understanding of the local business landscape which I will maximise within my role to create new opportunities.”

Sales Director, Keeley Shepherd, commented “It is a real pleasure to have Lyndsay join our rapidly expanding sales team. She understands the local culture and with her business knowledge, positive attitude and determination she will help us take Office Friendly and our brands further out into the Yorkshire region to help drive our growth and raise our profile.
