Chris Botha, Group Managing Director | THE MEDIA SHOP

“The MediaShop has had the privilege of extensively dealing with Irene Pilavachi in various organisations and roles. Most recently she was our client at the JD Group, co-ordinating the efforts of 7 different brands in one clear direction. Irene was integral to our strategic process and was highly involved in all negotiations. Her relationships with media owners, as well as print production partners often helped structure a beneficial deal for the group. Irene has a firm grasp of research, and knew how to mine for real value in a mountain of data. She goes the extra mile and adds value throughout the marketing process. We know in her new role at Kingsway Marketing she will be successful and add value to the South African marketing fraternity.”

“To have Irene on board for a project presents one with the opportunity to work with a consummate professional.  Irene is dedicated, expects perfection from suppliers and her team and delivers no less for her clients. Particular attention to detail and love of the English language have provided me with the confidence knowing that nothing escapes Irene’s eagle eye. This same professional marketer is generous with her knowledge and experience and has guided me on many an occasion in my endeavours in the marketing and communications realm. To have Irene on board is to know that the project at hand will be successful, professional and impactful.
