I am an effective organiser and planner with a proven track record in seeking out new, dynamic and profitable opportunities whilst firmly remaining true to the core brand manifesto. My highly positive, outgoing and friendly nature allows me to interact well with other staff members and customers at all levels and I pride myself on bringing the right measure of enthusiasm into the equation I am a highly competent team leader who is able to motivate employee’s and co-workers alike. My ability to work as a team player, meet deadlines and go the extra mile together with my penchant for detail have contributed to my success in the branding sector. As my stable work history shows, I am dependable and dedicated. I am familiar with all aspects of brand management including events and marketing, merchandising, event planning and management, inventory control, purchasing, cash and shrinkage control and customer service. In addition I am familiar with all financial operations including bookkeeping, allocation, budget development and administration and P&L. My previous roles include Quiksilver/Roxy and DC, Whilst there I played the key role in the development of the brands in the UK, the design of their store fascias, the buying and the events. I was in charge of the localised launch events, from idea to delivery. Working closely with Tony Hawk, Travis Pastrana and Ken Block to deliver on brand and work with large sponsorship packages. I have also worked for Sharp Corporation and McCormick who are both fortune 100 companies and exist in a different brand and product category all together but still fundamentally rely on the manufacturing and selling of goods and services. Sharp being an international high tech company and McCormick being a manufacturer of herbs and spices and other culinary items. I believe that having previously represented such a diverse group of brands but who all share the same goal gives me a unique and professional perspective
