I’ve never had a very boring day in my life at Kraft Heinz, every day is quite exciting. We work in a very competitive environment. So every day there is some issues coming out, there is competitive reaction to all our work plans so to manage this complexity, we try to structure daily and suppose to manage this huge complexity and dynamic environment so what we do, early in the morning we have a round of meetings with our Commercial Team with our Sales Team where we go over, analyze and track the performance and we define the action plan. Then we sit with Marketing and Trade Marketing Team and we perform some analysis on external and internal data. To again identify the risk and opportunities and we sit together to define the action plan to fill the gaps or to build the opportunities. On the second half of the day we normally meet our partner and our suppliers. We develop our consumer plan and strategy, we keep track of them. At the end of the day we work normally on the operations. We try to ensure that all these actions translate all the plan to tangible results.

Being a Marketing Manager Kraft Heinz means in very simple terms you are the brand guardian. As a brand guardian essentially you’re fully countable for the overall brand performance. We define the positioning of our brand and we drive a plan to achieve this position in a communication plan. Then we are responsible for the innovation. So we define new selling proposition and we re-evaluate the consumption in the market. We are responsible for the market strategy, so what we do, we define our distribution strategy and our distribution objective by region, country and channel. And ultimately we are responsible for the pricing strategies. So we define price, again by channel, by region and by product. All these combined together are supposed to drive your category consumption and ultimately we are responsible for these overall results. This is a very important role and this is very exciting role.

We are the brand guardians so what does it mean it means that we are fully accountable for the brand performance and we control for the mansion in marketing, control the product and it's proposition we control the price we control the promotion and the communication about the product we control the place so what we sell the product so what we do in marketing we manage all these for dimension and put in place actions and plans to address all these four dimensional when across all the fourth dimension. To give you a simple example, we set the very ambitious plan in this region to become leader of course all the market in our main category which is ketchup. How did we implement this vision, the strategy? First on the product dimension we have completely rationalized our portfolio so we got rid of what is called tale of our portfolio and we have just the set to keep in the market the high-value excuse will work on the innovation part so we decided to bring into the market new products with high value and high relevant for the consumer, on the other end on the communication part on the promotion part we decided to launch a new TV copy developed in the region and along with it we decided to build a new digital platform so this was a very massive communication plan and the brand communicate the superiority of our product. We then work on the price the mention that we decided to streamline our portfolio mechanic and to focus solely on the big volume driver promotion in our portfolio and we decided to review the overall pricing strategy across the markets and ultimately on the place with the city to improve our distribution across all the relevant channels in the region. When we put together on these for the mansion we deliver dramatic results in the region so it's two years in a row that we grow very high double-digit for two consecutive year so at the end all these marketing job combined together paid off.

I'll give myself as an example for it so I've been given the opportunity to grow very quickly in the organization so I've been ready through different roles than a beginning the opportunity to come to Dubai to experience new challenges and new market environment and when in Dubai also given the opportunity to enlarge my product portfolio responsibilities so the opportunities can be found both on our vertical career path or on horizontal career path so you can progress into your career in marketing but you can also expand your responsibilities within your camera roll and in terms of the global opportunity there's plenty of chance to be relocated into a new country we have more than 40 offices around the globe and one of the key value of the company is “consumer first” so the company's really putting marketing in the center of the organization it is a market eccentric organization.

Kraft Heinz is a company which has a hunger for success what does it mean, it means that in the DNA of the company there's a winning mentality and this reflects into our daily job and to the people you work with so the team and the leadership team really encourages you to take on big challenges to take on a big project and this is a big motivator for me.

Very easy to get familiar with the city, infrastructure of the city. Very friendly for expat people like me people coming from not only from Europe but any place of the world. Is a very good place to experience the concept of diversity so there's people from different cultural background, religious background and we all live together in a very collaborative environment so it's very nice to experience the life of Dubai and the concept of the melting pot of people and culture of religion.
