She will also support the development and delivery of Voltic’s strategy for building the profile and reputation of the corporate brand, and will ensure that company initiatives, projects and partnerships relating to social responsibility and sustainability issues are strategically aligned with business objectives, while building the company’s reputation among its key stakeholders.
Joyce is credited with several key achievements during her tenure at ABL. These include the development of the Alcohol and Pregnancy Programme, which seeks to educate pregnant women on the dangers of consuming alcohol; the Employee Wellbeing Programme undertaken in partnership with the Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH; and a number of sustainable development collaborations with both the public and private sectors.
She has also played an instrumental role in cementing both ABL’s and Voltic’s relationships with the media, and over the years has contributed to the success of both ABL’s and Voltic’s internal communications processes.
Commenting on the appointment, Philip Redman, Voltic’s General Manager, says Joyce’s education, skills, experience and passion about sustainability issues will ensure her success in her new role.
