Stephen Tremewan is the marketing and communications manager for leading facilities management recruitment company, Maxwell Stephens. Starting at the company in 2017, Stephen’s main role is to find new and innovative ways to further build and enhance the company’s highly-regarded brand in London and across the UK.
Stephen’s always been a marketing man and recognised it very early on in his academic career. It was this enthusiasm and drive that propelled him to pursue a degree in advertising and marketing at university. He graduated in 2011 with a First Class Honours Degree and has spent the last few years building up his knowledge of the industry and his reputation for delivering the required results on time and within budget.
Prior to joining Maxwell Stephens, Stephen succeeded in a number of different digital marketing roles in the areas of financial services, manufacturing, and education.
His is an up-to-date skillset, encompassing search engine optimisation (trying to get your website to the top of Google, Bing, and so on), pay-per-click campaigns, website and content management, and web design. “The world of marketing is unrecognisable compared with even just 5 years ago and it’s my job to keep Maxwell Stephens up to date with the latest trends, developments, and technologies”, Stephen says.
His biggest responsibility to date was the successful management of a £1.5m per annum pay-per-click campaign for a consumer loans company. Pay-per-click gets you a lot of clicks but you pay a lot for them. Using Stephen’s know-how of pay-per-click technology married to the right landing page content, he steered the company very quickly towards profitability using this channel – a rare feat indeed.
His biggest personal success came from a digital and print marketing campaign to encourage higher levels of enrolment at his local sixth-form college. The number of subsequent enquiries and conversions showed a marked up-tick because of his methods.
At Maxwell Stephens, he’s looking forward to positioning the company so that it can be successful across all marketing approaches. Using his abilities, he wants to communicate what he considers to be the company’s core strengths – its exceptional and bespoke level of service delivered personally to each client and candidate. In addition, he wants the company to build upon the company’s visibility and presence outside its core London market.
The movie that Stephen knows every line to is “Deer Hunter” – and he shares character Julien’s opinion that “When a man says no to champagne, he says no to life.” His favourite song is “Paradise By The Dashboard Light” by Meat Loaf and his desert island album would have to be a compilation of power ballads from the 1980s.
