Alison joined John F Hunt in 2001, originally in the role of New Business Development and Marketing Manager, before focusing purely on marketing and design.

The John F Hunt Group has expanded from 4 companies when she joined, to 15 currently, with marketing, photography and graphic design having changed immeasurably during that period . Alison manages the marketing for the whole Group, both digital and paper and was promoted to Group Marketing Director in 2017.

The creation of a new company called TechVertu, for which she is the Marketing Director, has been the latest project, providing a central in-house hub to manage the Group’s day to day IT and Marketing requirements.
