A little more about Marie

What is your job title at Holts?

I’m a Product Manager

What does a Product Manager do?

I will be looking after new and existing products for all brands; managing the development, lifecycle and strategies for them, as well as identifying any improvements or new opportunities.

What did you do before joining Holts?

I worked for Kingsland Drinks as their Product and Marketing Manager; producing, developing and distributing various wines and spirits from all over the world to on-trade and off-trade businesses in the UK.

What do you like most about your career?

There’s always something new to learn, and I enjoy the product journey; seeing a product develop from a scribble on a bit of paper to seeing it on a shelf is always exciting!

Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?

I’m a huge film nerd, but my biggest hobby is travelling, so any chance I can squeeze a film location in to a trip, I will!

What’s your favorite thing to do on the weekends?

As well as seeing family and friends, depending on the weather, it could be anything from a hike to decorating/DIY-ing to listening to my vinyl collection.

What three items would you take with you to a deserted island?

1. My black cat, ‘Plague’

2. A bottle (or two) of Rum

3. SPF (I would melt in seconds)
