Head of Brand & Marketing, Global Payments Inc.

I design and execute data-driven marketing strategies to meet customer needs while maximising revenue. I’m passionate about helping companies build high performance marketing teams, increase competitiveness and growth through actionable insights, market trend analysis and assessment of emerging technologies' impact to company operations. My strong analytical abilities are paired with strong interpersonal and stakeholder management skills.

Career & Background

What inspired you to do what you are doing now?

I was going to be an Accountant because I love numbers, but that all changed during my gap year.

I had an opportunity to work in the Accounts department of one of the largest companies in the country as preparation for Uni. 

I got curious about the Marketing and Sales team though – they were in a league of their own and I when I got an opportunity to intern there, I took it! 

I learnt Marketing wasn’t a colouring in department (as the accountants called it); but a revenue generating one. I learnt how, when managed properly, the synchronicity among Sales, Marketing and Customer success departments provided tremendous value to the organisation. 

It’s a field which allows tremendous creativity and problem solving within the confines of core principles. This experience was career altering and has shaped who I am today.

Where are you headed in your career right now?

I love all things Marketing. I want to continue growing in an integrated role leading high performance, passionate teams.
