Time Out: Rachel McElroy, Chief Marketing Officer at Cranford Group

The weekend is almost upon us and that means it’s time for some quick fire questions. This ‘Time Out’ features Rachel McElroy, Chief Marketing Officer at Cranford Group.

What is the first thing you do to get the weekend started?

Take my shoes off, reply to any final emails, close my laptop and pour a glass of wine.

What is your hobby?

I like walking my dog and I enjoy going to the gym so I can recharge from a busy day of work. I also absolutely love going out to eat – trying new restaurants is becoming a bit of a passion of mine!

What is your favourite movie?

It’s so hard to pick one, but for a pure ‘feel good’ film ‘The Greatest Showman’ is hard to beat in my house – we all love it!

If you hadn’t been successful at what you do, what would you be doing instead as a career?

I like to think I’d be on television – maybe as a chat-show host because I love to get to know people, and I’m often told I can talk!

If you could have any superpower what would it be?

I’d like to be able to fly, just to get that sense of freedom. Although, I’m not that keen on heights or flying if I’m entirely honest, so it would have to be a short experience to say the least!

What is your favourite genre of music?

I’m generally stuck in a time-warp where I mostly listen to House and dance music. A good vocal and a beat are essential for me.

If you could travel to any moment in time where would you go?

I’d go back to ancient Rome. It’s a fascinating period in history and is responsible for the creation of so many incredible things. The Romans were pioneers of their times – something I really admire.
