Van Heel's new boss, GyroHSR Manchester’s managing director Danny Turnbull, has labelled his latest recruit a "shining star", adding that she would bring "huge value" to the team.
In the new role, Van Heel will be based at the integrated agency’s Manchester office, working across clients including T-Mobile, HSS and Fujitsu.
She will report to Turnbull and be responsible for developing the agency’s insight offering. This includes research, analysis and customer behaviour.
