Using your partnership skills, you’ll work with agency teams to develop, execute and track marketing communications plans that deliver the brands’ goals, objectives and strategies.
  • Driving Successful Execution – Support the achievement of volume and profitability targets. You’ll monitor brand and competitive trade, consumer and promotion activity and create actions to address implications. Your sharp insights will shape the future!
  • Managing Winning Projects – Lead projects that improve the business over the short term and long term. You’ll direct successful reformulations, packaging changes, format adjustments and innovations through managing cross-functional teams. Your people skills will help you cultivate strong working relationships with both internal (sales, research and development, operations) and external (agency, research house, packaging designs and suppliers) support groups.
  • Fostering Communications and Strategies – Ensure effective consumer communication. You’ll increase the cohesiveness of the marketing group and company as you take personal accountability for enhancing its effectiveness.
