Spring is always a time for change in the Catalyst office and 2016 is no different. Luke, Jack and Jack all ‘graduated’ from the office, Jack Akers and Luke Baldwin members of the first cohort, whilst Jack Clark joined as a member of the second intake. Losing valuable members of the team is never easy – but the guys are moving on to face some amazing challenges.
The ever vibrant Jack Akers, a business student from Sussex who completed both a part time year and some full time work with Catalyst, has left to work in sales for Brandwatch - the social media marketing and online analysis giants based in Brighton. Anyone who met or worked with Jack A in his time here will know that this role is tailor-made for him and we wish him the best of luck!
Luke Baldwin has been with us since the beginning and was one of the few remaining from the original team. Luke studied International Relations at Sussex and was our go to international expert during his time here, as well as excelling at storytelling and branding. Having impressed in his work with Do Something Different, Luke has left Catalyst to work full time for the behavioural change company, before jetting off to America to cycle the entire East Coast – rather him than us!
Jack Clark has only been with us since September, but he has made quite an impact during his time here. Jack had completed a computer science degree at Sussex before moving on to finish a Business Masters. Other than being the only Leicester fan ever stumbled upon, Jack was a great member of our team and will be thoroughly at home at Partners Andrew Aldridge where he has become a business and technology transformation executive. We would like to take this opportunity to wish Jack, Leicester and both Jack and Luke all the best in the coming months.
Catalyst is a constantly evolving project and people leaving means that new students will be joining the Catalyst Team. To find out what our new students can do for your business, contact Lucy Paine on firstname.lastname@example.org
