Spotlight on staff -Joanne Bywater


You will be able to learn more about the people behind Pro-Stretch in our ‘Spotlight on’ blogs, and even learn some interesting facts about them too….all in their own words.

Hi there, I’m Joanne, I’ve worked in several different roles within Pro-Stretch UK for a number of years. I started out as an Accounts Assistant where I supported the Account managers within their roles, helping to coordinate our customers and brands. Over the years my role has evolved, and I am now passionately working in the marketing field.

Being Head of Marketing & Trim Materials here can be challenging at times, but to keep Pro-stretch ahead of the game, it is important that we stand out from our competitors. By using Social media and other digital marketing techniques we can ensure that we raise awareness of the brand. I create content for all our social media platforms, which include, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.

By keeping our website up to date with fresh and dynamic content we can achieve this. I am always looking for new ways to promote Pro-Stretch.

Another part of my role here includes hand making all of our sample catalogues to suit each customer’s needs, this can be quite time consuming, but great fun.

A little bit more about me…

I am Mum to my 11 year old daughter, which keeps me very busy, but in my spare time I love baking cakes for friends and family, and I would love to go on GBBO!!

I also love watching musicals at the theatre, going to music festivals and travelling around the UK in my camper van.

Interesting facts:

I have a BA Honours degree in Dance and I recently returned to the stage after a 10-year break, performing with members of the dance company I was involved in as a teenager! Which was great fun!

I also run a local back-to-netball weekly session and I play Goal Defence… I am also a massive fan of Lego!
