Describe Global Brands’ work environment in 5 words

Challenging, rewarding, progressive, engaging, flexible.

What makes you proud to work for Global Brands?

Our brands and our people.

What’s your biggest accomplishment at Global Brands?

It would have to be my progression within the company. Starting as a Regional Sales Manager I’ve worked my way up through various roles in the business to land in my current position leading the Route To Market Channel.

What’s the best project you’ve worked on, and why?

The project I’m currently working on, building the On Trade RTM strategy. It’s a challenging and varied piece of work and It’s given me an opportunity to build and coach an entirely new team with a good amount of autonomy and ownership of the channel.

What’s your favourite product by Global Brands? And why?

Tough one but I’d have to go with Franklin & Sons – I’ve been working with the brand from its very early stages and I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved so far and what we’ve got planned for the future.

So, just out of curiosity, what is your favourite packet of crisps?

Large tube of salt and vinegar Pringles, sour cream dip, ten minutes, gone!

If you had one piece of advice to someone wanting a career in the drinks industry what would it be?

Add value and you will become valuable.
