Elaine Hamilton is Head of Marketing & Sponsorship for McCrea Financial Services. Key to her role is ensuring that McCrea Financial Services are well represented in Scotland through a range of sporting and charitable events and activities. Elaine manages our website, newsletter and social media channels to maintain up to date news and information for clients as well as how we can share the opportunities generated through our sponsorships and charitable fund-raising with our clients and community.
Life before McCreas
I joined McCreas in August 2014 as a consultant and later joined full time as Head of Marketing having worked for many years in sales and marketing for sporting organisations, including Celtic Football Club, the Scottish Rugby Union and Partick Thistle Football Club and in music and television before that with MTV.
Out of the office
With a spirit for adventure, I often participate in events with a particular emphasis on running and hill walking and I'm a big supporter of Norwich City Football Club and Glasgow Warriors Rugby. I've trekked to the top of Kilimanjaro, run the (hottest ever) London Marathon and most recently took part in the Three Peaks Challenge to raise funds for McCreas charitable partnership. Live music, weekends away exploring Scotland and hanging out with my daughter feature highly on my list of favourite pastimes too.
Favourite thing about working for McCreas
I'm delighted that part of my role is ensuring McCrea Financial Services are well represented in Scotland through a range of sporting, cultural and charitable events and activities which our client base can benefit from and enjoy whilst at the same time indulging my love of all things sports and music related. I'm passionate about sharing what we can do for people with their financial planning particularly as someone who, until I joined the company, had broadly ignored the need to do so! We have a wonderful team at McCreas to work with, a great social network and are a growing business which means no two days are the same. Just my cup of tea!
I follow Monty Don on Twitter and attend Creamfields every year!
