“My mother was a great example and I grew up knowing that I wanted to run my own business just like she did.” 


“Having looked at various business ideas and the way the employment landscape was shaping up for the future, I felt a virtual assistance business offered the best solution. I have always loved networking, which is such a huge part of my role now.  Flexible working offers so many advantages to both my team and clients.  I am so thrilled with the business I have created.”

Rebecca Newenham, Founder and Owner of Get Ahead VA

Rebecca founded Get Ahead VA in 2010 after recognising a gap in the market for virtual assistance services that offered the flexibility, value and performance that small businesses and start-ups need in the 21st century, digital economy.

After a corporate career in buying for retail giants, such as Superdrug and Sainsburys, Rebecca was looking for a flexible work solution that could fit around her lifestyle and three daughters – now 15, 13 and 11. Having grown up with a successful self-employed mother, Rebecca knew it was possible to be able to contribute financially to the family and do the school run.

Customer service is top of Rebecca’s agenda and all of her virtual assistants pride themselves on having great communication with their clients at all times.

Rebecca is responsible for Get Ahead VA’s business development, which involves networking, acting as a matchmaker between her clients and VAs and providing ongoing guidance and support to her franchisees.
