Headed by experienced Group Commercial Director, Jon Atherton, the Centerprise Marketing Team has witnessed a 300% increase in manpower (or in this case, woman-power) since March – a month which has seen Karlee Gould (Creative Lead) join forces with new marketing executives, Harriett Walters and Julie Miah. Alongside this trio, an experienced copywriter, Nour Bahgat, has also recently joined the group. In addition, the Centerprise Marketing Department is looking forward to the recruitment of a second Designer in the near future. Well-known to the IT channel, and a seasoned veteran with over 25 years of experience, Atherton asserts:
“With this team, I am confident we will deliver on our promise to offer the Centerprise Group the truly well-rounded representation it deserves.”
Meet the Team!

Karlee Gould (Creative Lead): Armed with a degree in Fashion Design and Illustration, Karlee is in charge of all things design-and-art-related. She has been with Centerprise for 2 and a half years to-date. From crafting unique promotional material, to creating entire websites, Karlee is a one-of-a-kind artist with a keen eye for detail.
“We’re a Super-sonic Ci Machine #NoShame” – Karlee.

Harriett Walters (Marketing Executive): Upon obtaining a Business degree from Kingston Business School in 2014, Harriett lived for a year in Malta, before acquiring relevant experience working for an IT company. Highly-motivated and secretly witty, Harriett never fails to bring a degree of professionalism and friendliness to the table, delivering quality work which speaks for itself.

“Everyone in the team comes from varying backgrounds and experience and I look forward to the coming year and finding out what we are capable of together” – Harri.

Julie Miah (Marketing Executive): In 2014, Julie was awarded a 1st Class Honours Degree in Digital Media from Portsmouth University. After gaining significant expertise working in varying Marketing roles, Julie arrived at Centerprise ready to put her well-rounded experience, contagious enthusiasm, and helpfulness to excellent use.

“Being part of such an energetic team is inspiring; I am positive that our marketing team will excel greatly and I look forward to the future with the creative bunch here” – Julie.

Nour Bahgat (Researcher/Copywriter): Nour studied English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Reading, after which she completed a Master’s Degree in Publishing at UCL. She acquired practical experience in digital marketing at a number of publishing companies, and is now utilising her combined passion for editorial and marketing to assist the team.

“I am privileged to have been offered a place on this fantastic team. From working on annual marketing plans, to organising wonderful charity events, our department is constantly buzzing with energy. I look forward to helping bring all our creative plans to life!” – Nour.

Aside from the significant growth in people on the ground, Centerprise has aligned its focus to incorporate the Marketing Team directly with Sales, in an effort to maximise future potential as well as increase awareness of all campaigns. Centerprise has also established new partnerships with vendors, and has solidified pre-existing relationships with others, including Dell, Panasonic and Fujitsu.
Moreover, for the future, Centerprise has plans to expand on its current customer focus, which at this point in time is predominantly public sector, and has been such since the company’s foundation in the 1980’s. In preparation to develop its profile in the private sector, Centerprise has initiated a B2B business unit and has expanded its Distribution Sales Business Unit.
Thus, with an increased focus on PR, and with a goal both to create new partnerships and strengthen established ones, the Centerprise Marketing Department is well-equipped to embark on the promising voyage ahead.
