Marketing Director – Emma Benney
I love young entrepreneurial companies that are fast paced and have real vision and passion. Generator is one of the most exciting brands out there at the moment and I wanted the be part of making sure that everyone knows what we are up to and wants to be part of it too.
In a nutshell, what is your role and what does an average day consist of?
I am the Marketing Director and every day is different. As our brand is new and evolving I work closely with the creative team to develop the brand visually. The team and I are always working on a number of great brand partnership projects and developing our online strategy – watch this space.
