Caroline Harrap joins The Market Place
With the start of a new year, we are ringing in the changes here at The Market Place too, with the announcement that the former editor of Surrey Life magazine, Caroline Harrap, has joined our team of experts as a freelance advisor. Although now based in Paris, we are fortunate to be able to welcome Caroline as part of our team here at The Market Place during her regular visits to the UK.
“We’re very excited to announce Caroline as an editorial and PR consultant as part of the expansion of the business,” says The Market Place managing director Tracy Carroll. “After 10 very successful years editing Surrey Life she will be bringing her extensive expertise in copywriting and editing, story placement and public relations.”
During her tenure as editor, Caroline increased the magazine’s circulation by almost 45%. She was also named by the Chambers of Commerce as one of the Top 10 Businesswomen in Surrey, interviewed both Dame Judi Dench and Sir David Attenborough, and has previously served on the judging panel in the publishing industry’s PPA Awards.
She was also very involved in the Surrey Life Food & Drink Awards, of which The Market Place is an official partner, and which has now grown into the county’s leading event of its kind with an annual black-tie extravaganza for more than 300 people.
The Market Place provides marketing, PR and sales management and support to a growing portfolio of clients, primarily in the food, drink, leisure and retail sectors.
