Back in 2007 as the first ever Diageo Marketing Director for Eastern Europe, Jane created a new team and a new smart way of working. She recruited, developed and managed 8 marketing specialists across 7 countries to oversee the cluster of 25 Eastern Europe Distributor led markets.
From Riga to Sofia, Brussels to Warsaw, Kiev to Athens, Jane created a talented and flexible team. They even cracked a smart way to do virtual strategic
and brand planning with all markets via webex and regular interactive phone conferences.
The team led some of Diageo’s best search & spin processes and to long term success stories like J&B whisky in Romania, Bushmills trend leadership in Bulgaria, market share gain in Poland and a turnaround of Johnnie Walker Red in Croatia. The team even had a virtual Secret Santa at Christmas time!
