Share this post

SkyParlour, the Fintech PR agency, has made multiple hires, including two senior appointments, as its expansion plans accelerate.
Former editor-in-chief of The Paypers Adriana Screpnic has joined SkyParlour as a senior content strategist. She will be based out of SkyParlour’s recently announced London office. Adriana has had an illustrious international career within fintech marketing and journalism to date. Most notably, she spent nine years at the highly respected global fintech publication The Paypers, growing the publication’s reputation and readership with excellent industry insight and content. Adriana is a true fintech specialist. She has a wide network of industry connections, a detailed understanding of the fintech ecosystem and unrivalled copywriting skills, all of which make her an ideal addition to SkyParlour.
In another strategic hire that bolsters SkyParlour’s senior account team, B2B PR expert Jenna Walker joins SkyParlour as an account director. A trained journalist, Jenna recently held positions at One Brand Magic and Citypress in the North West of EnglandBased out of SkyParlour’s Manchester office, Jenna’s focus will be on leading the global PR strategy for several of SkyParlour’s international clients across the fintech ecosystem, including a well-known payments brand and an award-winning fraud prevention specialist.
SkyParlour has also taken on two digital communications assistants from Manchester apprenticeship organisation The Juice Academy. Digital communications is an exciting discipline and one that is required for any fully integrated communications programme. Habon Burale and Olivia Johnston receive on the job training and experience from SkyParlour’s digital communications consultants in tandem with classroom learning at The Juice Academy.

Matthew Pearsdirector at SkyParlour, says We are a people business and making the right hires is crucial. The SkyParlour team is the beating heart of the business and behind all its successes. Adriana and Jenna are exceptional hires for us. They both bring experience, industry knowledge and a seasoned skillset, which has allowed them to make an immediate positive impact. 

The apprenticeship programme with the Juice Academy in Manchester is something special to be involved with too. It has provided a way for SkyParlour to open the door into the PR industry for Habon and Olivia, who in return bring youth and a passion to learn. This is equally important to SkyParlour’s future. All four of these individually brilliant women have made the team stronger and will help SkyParlour and our clients achieve great things together. But perhaps more importantly they are also great people to work with

It’s exciting times at SkyParlour and this is just one piece of the puzzle. 2021 is shaping up to be a fantastic year – watch this space.

These appointments follow the announcement last month that SkyParlour has created three new business divisions – Started, Scale and Consult – to better support businesses in the evolving fintech market at all stages of development, from start-up, to scale up, and scale out. The agency has also opened a new office space in London, with plans to open an office in New York in January 2021.

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.
