We have recently bid farewell to Kirstie Fraser, the Team’s Events Manager. Kirstie left Marketing Edinburgh on 22 June and has hung up her Events hat to pursue a new career in the drinks industry. Kirstie was a great addition to the Team and she will be greatly missed, but we are excited to welcome our newest addition, hopefully very soon!
