Vice President, Director of Integrated Marketing

As the Director of Integrated Marketing, I oversee a team that manages the strategic development and deployment of Sotheby’s marketing capabilities and serves as the primary liaison between the salesforce and the broader marketing division. I partner with business leads to develop and articulate strategic marketing goals for divisions, departments, sales, and special projects. Achieving these goals requires close collaboration with the Content & Creative, Customer Retention, Events & Partnerships, and Marketing Operations teams. This team also plays a pivotal role in creating clear and compelling descriptions of our strategies, tactics and results in order to retain clients and attract new business.

Sotheby's

Associate Vice President, Deputy Director of Video Production

In this role I managed all stages of the lifecycle of a video - including creative development, production, post-production and distribution, in order to support robust content marketing campaigns that showcased and supported the unique objects with which Sotheby's is entrusted. Given the size of our small team, this role combined elements of production, creative direction, business management and post-production across various styles of video content. During my tenure, I produced documentary-style interviews, CGI, animation, and live-streamed events. As a team, we produced over 375+ videos annually, with the Americas contributing about half of that production. Globally, our team has achieved a two-fold increase in viewership year over year for both 2018-2018 and 2018-2019. So far, we have generated over 25 million views in H1 2019. During the past five years, Sotheby’s has scaled its video production and has been recognized by numerous international awards: '
Treasures from Chatsworth' – Webby Awards, Best Branded Series (Winner) – Cannes Corporate Dolphin (Winner) – Lovie Award (Winner) 'A Journey Through Bellotto and Canaletto's Venice' – Lovie Award (Winner) 'Surrealist VR' – Digiday Awards, ‘Best Use of Video' (Nomination) – Webby Awards, Best Use of VR (Nomination) 'CGI Journey Through Turner's Ehrenbreitstein' – Webby Awards, Best Animation (Nomination)
