What’s your job title?
Trade marketing manager

Your favourite grocery shop?
I like to shop in Supervalu. They have the product range I want but still have that local shop feel. A smile goes a long way.

How long is your typical working day?
As with most people now there is no such thing as a typical working day it can be any thing from 8 to 10 hours. It’s lucky I enjoy my job.

How do you describe yourself?
Loyal, hard working and stubborn.

What’s your favourite Irish product?
Tayto crisps. One pack is just never enough.

What’s your favourite brand, outside of the brands you represent, and why?
Coca–Cola. I love their advertising, I associate the sound of a can opening with Coca- Cola and it’s only Christmas when their “Holidays are Coming” ad appears on television.

What historical figure would you invite to dinner?
Napoleon. I find him fascinating and a brilliant strategist.

The best gift you ever received?
A pair of Louboutins. The males out there won’t know what that they are but the females will. Simply divine.

What possession could you not live without?
My address book. I am really bad for losing phones and remembering phone numbers.  If I didn’t have it written down I’d lose contact with everyone.

What was your first job?
Working for an Irish plastics company in Texas as a marketing assistant.

What was your childhood dream/ambition?
I wanted to be a dancer after seeing the Nutcracker in The Cork Opera House one Christmas. The only problem was that I lacked the talent.

What’s your ambition now?
I want to retire to Italy. I love the people and the food. The weather isn’t bad either.

What’s the worst ad ever?
The Crazy Frog ad just drove me insane.

What’s your favourite ad at the moment?
I love the dancing dodo ad for the Five Alive juice drink. You can’t help but smile.

Your favourite newspaper?
As a true Cork person I’m going to say the Irish Examiner – it may have changed its name but it will always be the Cork Examiner to me.

Who is inspirational in Irish business?
Caroline Casey, founder and CEO of Kanchi. Despite being blind she hasn’t let her disability hold her back.

In your opinion what’s the next big thing?
Renewable energy

What (if anything) was the last thing you bought on the internet?

What’s your pet hate?
I hate people talking on their mobile phones when they are being served in shops or in the bank. It is just rude.

What makes you laugh?
Michael McIntyre

Three essential grocery items you’d take with you for a week on a desert island?
Coca Cola, Tayto and a bar of Dairy Milk. No need to stick to a diet if I’m on a desert island.
