Jane Moores Director and Principal Account Manager

Jane has over 20 years’ experience of marketing in the IT sector. She began her career in the early nineties working for specialist tech PR agency, The Edge Partnership (now Context PR).  She joined TTA in 1999 and since then has managed a small team that has implemented successful public relations and outsourced marketing campaigns on behalf of both UK and overseas clients.

Jane can immediately grasp the business benefits of a product or service, however technical, and identify the most compelling angles – both from a sales and press perspective. As a result, she can turn what can potentially be a dry product or service into a story that will capture the attention of the relevant press and/or target market.

With an established number of journalist contacts in the IT, vertical, business and national press, Jane and her team have gained extensive coverage for a range of SMEs, from by-lined articles through to customer case studies.

Her key aptitudes and skills include creativity, copy-writing (case studies, opinion pieces, blogs, by-lined articles) and social media management.

Jane has worked for many companies over the years including Swyx, bluQube, Amcat (now Noble Systems), U.S Robotics (3Com), Salmat VeCommerce,Videte IT, Unix Software, Converso Contact Centres, SDX (Northern Telecom) and ITK (Digi International).
