With brand talkability up +113%, billions of impressions amassed, 97% positivity rates and sold-out products - her ideas work. To name a few: First-ever Indoor Ads: During lockdown, AXE paid people to display one of their branded items in their homes and share them on Instagram. +4.000.000 users, €1.300.000 in earned media, new sign-ups every 1.8 seconds, and all sold out within a day. AXE harnessed Snapchat to turn Munich’s stadium into the Pride flag, just 48 hours after UEFA announced it was banning rainbow lights for the Hungary match. +500,000 people pledged their support and 11% of fans at the stadium used the filter. AXE created limited-edition DOGECANS based on the popular cryptocurrency, achieving 1.95Bn impressions over 14 days across 4 platforms (1.6Bn was organic.)

She is willing to take risks and make sure the ideas are executed authentically and flawlessly. She is a force for creativity, and it shows.
