As a brand manager, my role is to ensure I craft purposeful brands wherein every consumer touch point is an opportunity to impact people in a socially positive way and to contribute to their lives more fully. It also means bringing thoughtfully planned innovations to the marketplace that are both meaningful to consumers and kind to the environment.
