Grocery Marketing Director joins ‘Marketing Academy Fellowship’ 2017

We’re delighted to announce that our very own Grocery Marketing Director - Helen Warren-Piper - has been awarded a place on the prestigious ‘Marketing Academy Fellowship’ in 2017 along with 16 other leading Marketing Professionals at the top of their industry.

Helen-Warren-Piper.jpgThe Marketing Academy is a highly respected non-profit organisation which develops leadership capabilities in talented individuals working in marketing, media, advertising and communications. The Fellowship is developed in partnership with leading global consultants McKinsey & Co.

Previous alumni include Keith Moor, CMO of Santander; Peter Corijn, Global CMO at Imperial Tobacco; Craig Inglis, Customer Director at John Lewis; Sarah Warby, Marketing Director of Sainsbury’s; April Adams-Redmond, CMO of Kerry Foods; Guillaume Boutin, CMO of Canal +; Steven Overman, Global CMO of Kodak; Kristof Fahey, CMO of Ladbrokes; Katie Vanneck Smith, Global Managing Director of Dow Jones. The Fellowship is highly respected within the industry and as such, gives Premier Foods a great platform to communicate our point of view in the industry.

Speaking about the importance of harnessing the talent of leading marketing professionals, The Marketing Academy’s Founder Sherilyn Shackell said, ‘It’s common sense that the voice of the customer should be heard in the boardroom. Unfortunately it’s not common practice and this needs to change. We believe that the boardrooms of the future will be led by individuals who put customer at the heart of the business. In our view Marketing Directors are exceptional candidates to lead businesses however there is a distance between the leader of the marketing function and the CEO role. We provide our Fellows with unprecedented opportunity to bridge the knowledge and skills gap and reach the highest levels of business serving on company boards.” 

Congratulations to Helen for this accolade and opportunity.
