Through a networking marketing campaign I was able to grow a start-up brand from its inception to a National and Continental Industry leader. Peaking at in excess of 1000 clients I was able to tap into a gap in the market and ensure that our offering fulfilled a void with a huge need. I am ensured that during the growth phase the company focused on diversification of their products and counter acted seasons fluctuations with their wide range of offerings
During my time working with the brand I oversaw a number of changes in the positioning of the product within the market to allow the company to fill gaps which existed.
