Amanda Hargreaves has over 18 years PA and EA experience, and is one of the co-founders of the Manchester PA Network, which was set up in July 2011 as a not-for-profit organisation to give EAs and PAs the opportunity to meet, network and develop long-term professional relationships.
Since its inception, Amanda has been a driving force behind the continued growth and success of the Network which now boasts over 750 members.
Amanda has worked in a variety of PA and EA roles during her 18-year career, ranging from PA to the Managing Director of a small mortgage brokerage, EA to a team of equity partners at a large national corporate restructuring practice, and is now Senior EA to the CEO, CFO and Board of Non-Executive Directors at PZ Cussons. PZ Cussons is one of the world’s leading consumer brands, selling well-known products including Sanctuary Spa, St. Tropez and Imperial Leather around the world.
Amanda’s current role is very demanding and involves travel across Europe, the Far East and Africa, travelling with the CEO, CFO and the Non-Executive Board, and is responsible for event management, and organising large or small conferences for senior PZ Cussons executives from all over the world.
Amanda is passionate about promoting and developing the important role EAs and PAs play in the business community and is dedicated to the continued growth of the Network.
