Rising star: Nikki Peters, senior account executive, Stand Agency

Nikki Peters has proved herself a natural and enthusiastic networker since joining Stand Agency as its first employee in June 2012.

She helped charity KidsOut on a pro bono basis while studying for a degree in PR at Leeds Metropolitan University. She sits on the PRCA charities sub group and even though the 25-year-old only has a couple of years’ experience, brought in a sizeable project from Anchor Care Homes.

As well as supporting the new business effort, she has worked on several Stand accounts. These include the Grey Matters campaign for Anchor, Dementia UK's Time for a Cuppa and Contact the Elderly in the run-up to the latter's Golden Jubilee.

Stand managing director Laura Oliphant says her greatest achievement has been her ability to grow with the company: "She joined us in month two and adapted to whatever we threw at her."
