Meet some of the Editorial Account Manager Team

Alex Smith - Editorial Account Manager - Digital Marketing

I grew up in China, Singapore, and Taiwan, and spent my childhood moving around, never staying in one place too long. This exposed me to a huge amount of different cultures and people, from Ghanaians to Brazilians to Thai to Kazakhstanis and so on. Growing up predominantly in Asia, I embraced my mother's Taiwanese culture and family and the diverse multiculturalism of my surroundings.

I thus came to the UK in 2017 as a virtual stranger, unaccustomed to the culture, and the weather especially. Having graduated from the University of Manchester during a global pandemic with a degree in Biochemistry, I was ecstatic to join the AZoNetwork team in late 2020 and to be able to play a role in the promotion of science worldwide.

AZo was my first experience with a job and it's safe to say it's exceeded my expectations. While there is technically a hierarchy, AZo functions in a very non-hierarchical way, I never feel unable to take my thoughts and opinions to the management and always feel as if my thoughts and opinions are valued. It's also a very open and self-sufficient workplace, training was comprehensive and adapted to each person. Everyone has also been really friendly and welcoming. I've always felt supported and valued. I was given room to grow into my own niche within the company that best suits my capabilities.

Biochemistry notwithstanding, I am passionate about sports, having played virtually every sport under the sun during my schooldays, with a particular soft spot for basketball and swimming. I also enjoy reading, tackling works from acclaimed authors such as Cormac McCarthy or ancient epics like the Shahnameh. Writing is another passion of mine, and I am currently writing my first screenplay, more for my own amusement that any real goal. I enjoy discussing all thing philosophy with AZo's resident philosopher, Adam King, much to the delight of our co-workers.

Olivia Frost - Editorial Account Manager - Digital Marketing

My name is Olivia but known to most as Liv. I graduated from Bangor University, North Wales with a 1st Class BA(Hons) in English Language and Journalism. I then went on to a receive a MSc in Publishing from Edinburgh Napier.

At AZoNetwork, I'm an Editorial Account Manager who looks after a variety of different clients. I work closely with my accounts to ensure the best outcome possible - I'm always up for a virtual panad ('cup of tea' in Welsh) and I look forward to doing these in person soon.

I joined the team in the summer of 2020 and I now look after over 100 different accounts and no day is the same. I am pleased to say that I really enjoy working with the team and everyone was extremely welcoming when I first joined.

In my spare time, I enjoy going for walks with my partner and puppy (who's named after Dani Dyer!), long FaceTime calls with my family back in Norfolk, and getting stuck into a good Netflix series.
