Work History

If you want to know what working at Google is like, just read, "How Google Works". Short version: it's amazing. I learned a lot during the time I spent there.

I spent 5 years working at Coca-Cola Ltd, although I never worked on brand Coke. I was hired to lead the Energy Drink business (2010-2013), then was asked to launch "Zico Coconut Water" into Canada (2013), then promoted to run the Simply Orange / Ade business (2014-2015).

I worked as the Senior Marketing Manager, Pizza Hut (Dine-In & Tuscani Pastas) for Yum! Restaurants International Canada from 2008 to 2010. I successfully launched two flavours and three format extensions for Tuscani Pastas via a national IMC campaign, and those new formats accounted for 65% of Tuscani national sales dollars post-launch. The TV ad I developed as part of launch (which was my first ever experience with TV) was awarded a coveted Yum! Reel Award by Pizza Hut’s Global CMO.

I worked at Starbucks Coffee Canada for four years, which was likely the start of my current caffeine addiction. I helped launched Starbucks Coffee into grocery stores, then ran all of the marketing for Canada for every division except their retail stores. (That would be Foodservice, Office Coffee, and Licensed Stores Business Development.)  Fun Fact: I was not only a certified barista, but also a Black Apron Coffee Master!

I led the development of Pizza Hut’s innovative Eat Well menu (i.e. first multigrain pizza crust, multigrain pasta, and 6 Health Check™ recipes) to address consumer trends around healthy eating, and launched it with an integrated marketing campaign. The Eat Well portfolio achieved target menu mix in just 3 months, and 80% of recipes remain available today!

I led the energy drink's partnership with UFC Champion Georges St-Pierre, and had the opportunity to connect with him on a few different occasions. (For the record, GSP is a terrific guy.)  Fun-Fact: GSP taught me a very effective sleeper-hold during a training session we organized as part of a consumer contest. My sparring partner for the session? SportsCenter's Jay Onrait.  :)

I was hired as the first Chief Marketing Officer for the Hill Street Beverage Company, a publicly-traded (TSXV: BEER) producer of alcohol-free and cannabis-infused wines and beers. I was responsible for brand strategy and development, integrated marketing communications, corporate communications, investor relations, cannabis strategy, and eCommerce (direct-to-consumer) business. Also, making sure we had photos that looked this good!  :)

I had the pleasure and privilege to launch ZICO Coconut Water in Canada. And things went well: ZICO generated 10% greater revenue than was forecasted and $1.5 million in incremental profit for the company in it's first year!

I was very proud of this innovation! Launching Simply Orange with Coconut Water as a made-in-Canada -- everything from coming up with the original insight, to leading the development of the formula, to getting it on shelf -- was very (VERY!) difficult, but it happened... and it won a Best New Product award as voted by consumers!  (Also, it was delicious.)

Simply Orange with Coconut Water - Suzie The Foodie

Simply Orange has come out with a “new product” by adding coconut water to their fresh orange juice. They sent me some coupons to try the product, as well as some fun brunch-making tools for me to try! My own monogrammed serving platter and knife! They included adorable bow tie glass charms for making my […]

I'm recognized as a Chartered Marketer by the Canadian Marketing Association (CMA).   Fun Fact: I was one of the first 100 people to earn this designation. Another fun fact: none of the people in this photo are me, although I worked with one of them and once interviewed with another.

What excites you most about the Chartered Marketer Program?

Schulich School of Business. Beautiful building, right? That's where I spent many hours earning my MBA (Strategic Management / International Business, 2008).  The old Schulich building where I earned my Honors BBA (Marketing, 2000) is just a short walk from this one; it was much less nice, but still had it's charms.

This is my wife Meredith, arguably one of the most patient people alive. This photo was taken on the carousel in Central Park (NYC), where we went to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the day I surprised her with a NYC getaway to propose. Ask me about the story... it's a fun one.  :)

These are my amazing kids!  Fun fact: my wife is a photographer, and this photo was taken in our home studio. (This is actually a photo of her computer screen as she was editing the final shots.) The hat wasn't planned... our little guy just refused to take it off! From left to right: Andrew, Chloë, Charlotte, and Aidan.

This is my dog, Khaleesi, a purebred Labrador retriever. If you want her to be your BFF, all you have to do is pet her.  Why, yes, my wife and I are big "Game of Thrones" fans, why do you ask? :)

I love playing chess. And I love the fact that my two oldest kids love playing chess with me. This guy is shockingly good.... He hasn't beat me yet, but he's going to do it much earlier than I was able to beat my own father (who taught me how to play).

This is my youngest son, playing my piano. My parents got this for me when I was seven years old, and I've had it ever since. I don't play as often as I'd like, but at one point in time -- long, long ago -- I was pretty good, and actually earned a high-school credit for my Royal Conservatory of Music certifications. (i.e. Grade 8 Piano, Grade 2 Theory).

I love coffee. And I drink a lot of it. (I have four kids, remember...)   If you ever want to instantly get on my good side, just bring me a Quad-Venti, Non-Fat, Cinnamon-Dolce Latte with Whip. (In the Fall, swap out "Cinnamon Dolce" for "Pumpkin Spice", and during the Holidays, make it a "Caramel Brule".)

My wife and I have always been a little bit... different. We didn't want traditional photos for our wedding, so we made a few interesting stops. One of them was to the Starbucks where we first met. This one was at Nathan Phillips Square for a quick skate around the rink. (Let's recognize the fact that we were married in December, and yet my wife is outdoors without a jacket and bare shoulders for a great photo. #Trooper)
