Working with great brands and people excites me and gets me out of bed in the morning. Over the course of my career, I've been fortunate enough to manage some of New Zealand's most loved and well-known brands as well as some international favourites in Fashion, Retail and FMCG.

I believe building strong relationships with colleagues and business partners produces the best results for the long term. When everyone is invested in the challenge together, great things can happen.

Someone asked me recently what I'd study if I had my time again, and I can honestly say I'd choose the same career path - marketing is in my blood and I've never had a job I didn't like.
