Maria previously held the role of Brand and Marketing Director at Total Foodservice Solutions Ltd, covering Lancashire, Cheshire, Merseyside, Cumbria and Yorkshire.

Her experience spans many sectors, both private and public, including education, manufacturing, hospitality, retail, and trade wholesale. In all of her roles through the last 15 years, Maria has worked in close partnership with Marketing Lancashire and has gained her understanding of the Lancashire business landscape and the challenges faced in promoting both business and county.
As part of the Marketing Lancashire team, Maria is keen to see, drive and celebrate the success of Lancashire businesses and help promote that success to the wider world.
