Recruitment: CV

Debra Healy, Digital director, Exchange & Mart.

How did you get into the automotive business?
When I accepted a job as new business development manager at Loot in the ’90s.

What does your job entail?
Operating the online business, development of the website and internal systems to create and deliver efficient and effective advertising solutions.

How will your job change over the next few years?
We must keep one step ahead to maintain audience growth and develop our products to keep up with demand.

What advice would you give to young people joining the industry?
Enjoy it, have fun, be passionate and be prepared to work hard.

What is the worst career move you’ve ever made?
Each step has played its part in leading me to this point in my career... never have regrets.

And the best?
Each move is the best at that particular time.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time?
Hopefully living on a tropical island... but my twins will be teenagers then. I’ll probably be in a car waiting outside a party to embarrass them by taking them home at a sensible time.
