Nancy began as a merchandiser for L’Oreal, where the product meets the consumer. ‘The art of the sale’ was soon added to Nancy’s skill set when she joined the Ontario food broker William Dunne and Associates. She began working with large Principles such as Kraft, Hunt Wesson, Perrier, Uncle Ben’s, and Glad, eventually managing their Non-Food Division and overseeing the development of the Drug and Mass channels.
Returning to her cosmetics roots, Nancy moved to Revlon as Director of National Accounts. Her passion for leading teams was illustrated by double digit results and new product launch success.
Appointed VP Sales and Marketing for Sally Hansen, the company tripled in size in four short years. Nancy’s creative juices were stimulated with product development projects that she would pioneer in Canada before Global rollout. With the acquisition of Sally Hansen by Coty Inc., a global cosmetic company and the world’s fragrance leader, Nancy remained as VP marketing for the Colour Division, managing Rimmel, Sally Hansen and NYC with continued growth.
Most recently Nancy finished a tenure at Clorox Canada. Working along side the Burts Bees team, she led their most successful Cosmetics launch Globally. The team established distribution and market share growth that made brand history. Additional responsibilities included Associate Director of Sales Strategy for Clorox and participation as part of the Sales Leadership Team.
Nancy now enjoys consulting projects in numerous categories and is engaged in research for an upcoming book in 2020.
