Behind the Scenes – Meet our Team

Yvonne Crolla is our Marketing Manager, and is responsible for the marketing activity across all three of our centres – Dallam Court in Warrington, Bridgewater House in Ellesmere Port and Thursby House in Bromborough.

“I joined Portal back in 2012. Prior to joining my background was mainly in the automotive industry so this was something of a diverse change! My job is ensuring that the company is marketing itself effectively and that we are adhering to our own brand guidelines, portraying the company in the best possible way and keeping the centres full! The industry and the routes to market are constantly changing – the rise of the internet and social media means that traditional marketing mediums are almost redundant, so we need to ensure that we stay ahead of the game and keep up to date with the latest trends.

In my spare time, I am a true family girl, and love spending time with my husband and children, and my family up in Scotland. We love to travel in our motorhome, especially through France and Spain. I am a keen runner and recently completed my first Tough Mudder which was quite a challenge! I love to cook and enjoy a good bottle of wine.

I absolutely love singing but am beyond terrible. My husband bought me a karaoke machine a few years ago and I have spent many a wine-fuelled night with friends, belting out some classics, until my children intervene and beg me to stop! My husband also got me into Spandau Ballet, and a few years ago Tony Hadley was singing at a charity event we attended. I’m not entirely sure how it happened, but I ended up on stage singing Gold with him! I think he turned the mic off ….”

Thanks Yvonne! Let’s make sure our next team night out does not involve a karaoke bar!
