My Best Hire: Sue Lowry, MD of Magellan PR, on the 'effervescent' Melanie Childs

'Melanie joined me shortly after Magellan PR started in 1998, as an account executive. She had no background in PR, but I thought her attitude would translate well, and I was right.

'Melanie was interested in everything and everyone - an attitude that worked well with media and clients. As our firm grew, taking on clients such as The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, Melanie worked her way up to account manager.

'In 2003, just as I was about to promote her to account director, she decided to head back to the south coast. I recommended her to an old client, John Stauss at Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, who was opening the chain's first rural UK property in Hampshire.'

Melanie Childs is now spa business development manager for Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts.
