Former Sales and Marketing Co-ordinator for luxury men's shoe brand, looking for next step in a marketing and/or online position. I have gained thorough experience in all sectors of running an emerging luxury brand, specifically and more recently in the wholesale and PR/marketing department. Prior to this, I was involved with the opening of two Mr. Hare stores and launching then managing the online site. I am now craving a new challenge to push my capabilities, so that I can grow in a direction of interest to me. I am capable of learning quickly and working with a logical and commercial awareness, which can be accounted for at various periods of my time at Mr. Hare. I am extremely driven to gain results for the company I work for and to achieve in my personal career. I am an excellent communicator, which I have developed through my education and by working for a small and quickly growing brand - being proactive and organised are qualities I excel in.
