The digital social revolution of the last decade has markedly changed the face of sales and brand marketing, and the proverbial heads of state at PRUSA sought out a team of visionaries back in 2011 to help re-tool their approach to on- and off-premise marketing. In November of 2013, Frank Polley, a seasoned marketer who hails from Diageo, InBev and then Heineken, was brought on board to focus PRUSA's visions for Trade Marketing with a goal of "Building the leading Center of Excellence within Pernod- Ricard Globally" and one that had a "strong future built on solid foundations," At Pernod Ricard's HQ in New York City, its founding father's mission lives on. Meet the marketing masters: Chris Patino, Director of Brand Education; Mitch Cristol, Director of Trade Marketing; Marime Riancho, Director Multicultural Marketing; Steve Chasen, Director of Trade Marketing; Ed DeLoreto, Director On-Premise and Consumer Engagement; Carol Giaconelli, Director of Marketing Operations; Frank Polley, Vice President Spirits Trade Marketing.
