Sr. Marketing Manager Global Export

I was working with Uttara on several projects over the past few years. She is a great person to work with: highly skilled, intuitive, confident, focused, committed and always graceful. She proved in all our common projects her in-depth knowledge regarding consumer insights and consumer centricity, market understanding, research methodologies and in particular the needed empathy for the culture of the markets / consumers we worked on. In the same time she is combining a hands-on attitude with a strong strategic approach, which helped a lot to deliver great results. I can only recommend to work with her as she is definitely a value-add to any organization and culture.

Uttara is a pleasure to work with and always delivers to an exceptionally high standard. She takes the pain to understand organisational needs and then brings innovative, relevant ideas and solutions to the table. Uttara has an incredible gift for making the complex appear simple, without being simplistic. She is not only thorough and efficient but also easy to work with, always willing to take the time to discuss any concerns and respond to questions. We highly value Uttara's Consumer Insights and Marketing skills and look forward to working with her on future projects.
