Justina's Profile

Experience Summary

I have enjoyed most areas of business development within a commercial and consumer capacity and have years of experience with NPL, P&L and R&D. I have first hand experience of dealing with most categories for recognised brands within the Fmcg and retail channel. My hands-on approach is key in maintaining relationships within these accounts and ensures the continuous drive for new innovative products to provide retailers with extra category value and ultimately the consumer with more choice. Key accounts have included Sainsbury’s and Tesco. I have also been involved in developing creative promotional calendars to drive growth within specific retail channels, working closely with the company agencies and Category Managers in-store. My promotional and marketing campaigns have encompassed customer retention activities to identifying and managing change within the market trends (specifically within the major multiples). I enjoy developing and managing teams to drive a product to it’s maximum potential. I have an exceptional ability to network and develop new relationships and partnerships with customers, suppliers and manufacturers alike. With reference to my career history, I was fortunate to work for a global drinks company – ‘Seagrams’ for 7 years. During my employment I was solely responsible for launching a virgin brand, Morgan’s Spiced. This is now recognised as a national brand due to the success of my sales and marketing campaign within the on-off trade. I therefore fully understand the requirements and strategies that are key in building on existing business and identifying new opportunities. My ability of selling and marketing high profile brands has been recognised by both employers and clients within blue chip companies. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
