A passionate individual with over 15 years of marketing, sales and visual merchandising experience in the action sports and streetwear/lifestyle markets. I take great pride in seeing projects from concept to completion. I have a proven track record in building and managing a team which has been influential in establishing 20+ quarters of double digit growth and $1B in sales (NORA) at Vans. I have fulfilled roles in both retail and wholesale environments. My strengths include leading and driving marketing and visual merchandising strategies across multiple categories and distribution channels. I have a great deal of project management experience as I have been a key player in many custom shop in shop environments as well as retail store openings. I am an open minded thinker and encourage change in order to create a more effective, motivational work environment for the company and individuals on my team while continuing to achieve business goals and objectives.
