Helen Toomey-Hesk

MD and founder of Melon Communications.

In 2012, after gaining over more than 15 years credible senior experience in marketing and communications for a variety of companies (big and small), Helen decided it was time to take the plunge and set up her own agency; Melon Communications was born.

Ever the results driven marketer, within just 18 months of starting up Melon won several highly prized awards and was increasing its client portfolio – with approximately 80% of new business coming from client recommendations. Not only has she the hands-on experience and a hugely successful track record, she also has the qualifications to back it up, including the highest level of Chartered Institute of Marketing qualifications.

Helen is a dynamic, fun, enthusiastic and sharp MD. Our clients love working with her for her energising personality, honest approach, determination to gain results and her infectious positivity. Believing in a balanced two-way approach Helen will only take on a project or client if she feels Melon is truly the right agency for them.
