  • Of the beliefs that:
    1. Change is less risky than the status quo

In university, you (of course) chose Marketing as your major and were in your element. Over the last five to ten years you have gained some great experience in CPG and maybe even the ‘better-for-you’ food and beverage space. Now you are looking for a new opportunity to challenge yourself, to grow, and to make an impact. You are prepared and confident to put yourself in a position to win. Colleagues and team members would describe you as dynamic, driven, and highly collaborative and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.

You are responsible to develop and execute the Marketing Annual Operating plan, promotional plans, and go-to-market plans. We look to the Brand Manager for the channel strategies and performance tracking for all current brands.
