As the CD, I oversaw the daily workflow and inspired the team to create award winning Sony Music Recording Artists’ sites. I developed strong collaborative working relationships with our label clients, conceptualizing the initial vision and direction of our sites. As more opportunity for Digital Marketing emerged, I oversaw the asset ideation an creation across all social and CRM channels. As our team grew from 12 to over 80 people, I took more of a cross functional leadership role, helping to develop marketing and product ideas by leading brainstorm meetings. Towards the latter part of this time period, we saw an opportunity to make our proprietary e-commerce solution available as a product and ultimately spun off into a Sony owned Digital Agency. My focus was split several ways; E-commerce and Product Development, Creative Team Management, Strategy and Client Pitches, Digital Marketing; and DTC physical product development. We became a top 10 US DTC retailer for entertainment products within the first two years of our platform launching.
