Field Marketing Manager & Regional Sales Manager, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group

I lead DPSG’s national customer marketing efforts for Dr. Pepper, Schweppes, and Crush. I also work with our customer’s Eastern Canada market unit to grow these brands’ market presence.

Experience in CPG:
I spent my early years in Account Management, activating brands in the retail environment and managing customer relationships. Next I shifted gears into Market Research to develop my analytics by understanding the shopper and consumer on a deeper level. The next few years were in Category Management & Business Analytics, managing vendor relationships and influencing merchandising strategies. Most recently I’ve added field marketing to my experience working with Dr. Pepper Snapple Group.
