Welcome to Cogent. Catherine Langton.
We are delighted to welcome Catherine Langton as the newest member of our team here at Cogent. Joining the Propagation Hub, Catherine lets us in on her experiences before Cogent and life outside of work.
What’s your new role at Cogent and what are you most excited about?
My new role is Sales and Marketing Executive, and I will be supporting the growth team in delivering against Cogent’s growth strategy. I will support new business pitches, proposals, tenders and RFI’s, support employer marketing as well as internal communications. I am most excited to be part of a creative agency, and work agency-side rather than in-house.
What were you doing before Cogent?
Before Cogent, I worked at a bank as the general assistant to the marketing department. I worked closely with many areas, especially communications, advertising and sponsorship.
Do you have an inspirational motto when it comes to your work?
‘There is no substitute for hard work when it comes to success’.
What’s your biggest achievement or the thing you are most proud of?
I am most proud of achieving a distinction in my master’s degree. My degree specialised in Luxury Marketing, and part of my course was to work on projects with Liberty of London on Regents Street, and Bicester Village. It was fifteen months of very hard work, but I’m extremely glad I did it.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
When I was ten, I sang at the Royal Albert Hall in front of 5,000 people. It was part of a charity organisation called Music For Youth, a great charity that provides young people aged 21 and under across the UK with free, life-changing performance and progression opportunities, regardless of background or musical style.
Can you tell us about an example of togetherness that you find particularly inspiring?
I found March for Our Lives massively inspiring, a student-led demonstration in support of stronger gun violence prevention measures in America. Between 1.2 and 2 million people took part, making it one of the largest protests in American history. Some of the participants were even aged below 11.
