We’ve recently added some brilliant new members to both our Sports & Consumer Teams…..and we’d like to introduce them.
Sports & Sponsorship
Tracy Watchorn, Account Director
Hey, I’m Tracy.. not exactly new after an exciting three-month freelance contract in 2018 I didn’t want to leave, so when offered a permanent role at Legacy I jumped at the chance. I recently moved home from the Middle East after more than 10 years living abroad. Bringing with me international work experience on large scale sports and entertainment events working for world-class organizations including UFC, FIFA Club World Cup, Dubai Rugby Sevens, AEG and Disney delivering to global brands. In my previous roles, I was responsible for developing, implementing and delivering event specific sponsorship and marketing strategies, creating outlines and justifications of benefits for partners. I am delighted to be part of the Legacy Communications team and looking forward to exciting times ahead.
Stephen Clarke, Senior Account Manager
Hi all, my name is Stephen Clarke. I’m born and raised in Dublin (Rathfarnham). I have a degree in Business Management & Marketing and a Master in Marketing. My experience to date is one year working for Millward Brown, managing the consumer data for the Diageo portfolio. From here, I went to work for Thinkhouse (full-service creative agency) where I spent three and a half years working on Heineken (Sports, Music, and Consumer), Unilever, Electric Ireland, Red Bull, and Lucozade. I am a massive sports fan. Rugby, Football, GAA, Golf. Anything that is anyway competitive I will watch. If I’m not watching sports you would probably find me either in Northern Ireland wakeboarding (It’s like skateboarding but on water) or at a random gig in town.
Eimhear Breen, Senior Account Executive
My name is Eimhear Breen. I’m from Carlingford in Co Louth. I completed a BA in Public Relation in Dundalk Institute of Technology. As part of my degree, I completed a six-month placement in Elevate PR and upon finishing my degree I started an internship in Edelman where I worked my way up to SAE working on accounts such as Coca-Cola, Unilever, and Mars Ireland. I come from a GAA crazy family with two sisters that play football at County level. Last year I took up GAA again after not having played for nine years and have loved every second of it.
Consumer & Lifestyle
Anthony O’Brien, Senior Account Manager
Hi all, my name is Anthony O’Brien. I’m originally from Dun Laoghaire but moved to Greystones a year ago after living in town for several years. I have a BA in Business and two post-grad diplomas, one in PR and the second in Event Management. I’ve been working in comms for a few years, my most recent role was with Yellow Machine, a PR / creative agency, as Account Manager. I was the account lead for a range of consumer clients such as GameStop, United Colors of Benetton, Thérapie Clinic and many more. In addition to these accounts, that may be considered traditionally consumer, I have worked with clients in the corporate, tech, property, financial, health, transportation, makeup, retail, fast food, restaurant, and music industries. I love working with clients across numerous industries, keeps things interesting. I’ve worked on some exciting projects in the past few years and love to drive innovation that can deliver tangible results. In my spare time, I love to travel, read, spend time with friends/family and hiking.
Alison Rothwell, Account Executive
My name is Alison Rothwell, but feel free to call me Ali! I’m from Raheny in North Dublin. I graduated in September 2018 with a BA in Journalism from DCU. During my course, I specialised in PR and also worked in PR roles with societies in college. Throughout my final year of college, I worked as an Account Executive in a PR and events agency called Buck & Hound. The agency has a large variety of mainly consumer-facing clients, such as Kilkenny Shop, Jameson Whiskey, Absolut Vodka, The g hotel, and Beefeater Pink Gin. I also double-jobbed for a year, spending my weekends in a trampoline park! I worked as a supervisor in the Jump Zone for four years, and as I progressed worked with the marketing and events team as well.
