Dakota Digital’s managing director, Rebecca Appleton has been nominated for a ‘Rising Star’ award in the Nottingham Post Women in Business awards.
The annual event celebrates the outstanding achievements of female entrepreneurs and professionals and highlights inspirational women working in the local community.
Now in its third year, the 2015 awards are bigger than ever with several new categories introduced. Categories include rising star, apprentice of the year, inspirational woman of the year, female executive of the year, manufacturing awards and a lifetime achievement award.
Miss Appleton was nominated by a client (the Nottingham Jazz singer, Campbell Bass) and colleagues in the Rising Star category. The awards nod is a culmination of a busy 12 months, which has seen the Garibaldi College and Nottingham Trent alumn win a series of big name clients and move into a large new office from a business centre address. Created four years ago, Dakota Digital is a boutique PR agency which has worked with the likes of Johnson & Johnson, Splenda, Neutrogena, Compeed and Majestic Wine.
Having moved White Hart Street in Mansfield town centre a few weeks ago, the agency has created a number of new jobs including an acting operations manager position and a copywriter role. A new account manager role is currently being advertised for a December start.
She said, “I was incredibly surprised to be nominated for the Rising Star award and really proud! It’s a fantastic achievement and one that is a testament to the hard work of the whole Dakota team.”
The winners will be revealed in a glittering ceremony on 25 November at Nottingham’s Crowne Plaza hotel.
