Aimee bridges the gap between our operations team and the head office. She looks after our processes and has cut our administration so that we can get on with delivering great services for our customers. Prior to working at Pioneer FM, Aimee ran her own small office cleaning company. She also worked in operations and customer services in the audio-visual industry and was once MJ’s manager. As Pioneer FM grew, MJ headhunted Aimee.
