Empowering rising talent
We are delighted to reveal Katie Shepherd, our very own Brand Manager was recently shortlisted as a finalist for the Insider Young Digital and Tech Professional of the Year for 2020.
Joining the company almost five years ago as a Junior Digital Designer, Katie has since gone from strength to strength in her professional development. Backed by our core company values of personal progression, Katie soon rose through the ranks to become our Brand Manager who is responsible for developing our visions and values and helps align ourselves to our top business objectives.The team are thrilled for her hard work and talents to receive well deserved recognition amongst other trailblazers across the region. Amongst many of her hobbies, Katie is also an avid fundraiser for our sponsored charity Derian House. As a member of our CSR, it's safe to say she gets up to a whole host of things when raising money for charity. This includes taking part in a sponge throwing contests and being arrested for the day. Pictured below, Katie was challenged to break out of jail and raise £999, which she achieved in record time beating the rest of the inmates.
Powering growth for online retailers
Graphic design, web development, creative planning and digital marketing are just a few of the skills at her disposal. Her invaluable efforts have been a front runner in some of the major successful internal projects here at fulfilmentcrowd. This includes leading the companies rebrand back in 2018, the launch of the fulfilmentcrowd platform and more recently helping to remove a frictionless sales process with the development of self-onboarding. This new implementation is an industry first and the hard work put in by the team has provided numerous invaluable benefits for our customers including:
- Low Shipping Rates - Access volume discounts across an integrated network of trusted carriers.
- International Reach - Distributed, flexible storage in centres spanning the UK, Europe and USA.
- Freedom to Grow - Gain the time you need to focus on expanding your business.

Not only that, but this has had a direct impact on brand recognition and the performance of our company, with record levels of new client acquisition, revenue and profitability” Lee Thompson, Managing Director.
