BRANDED - Shani Reid

Brand Manager — Chas E Ramson

Thursday, February 14, 2013

How did you land this job?

After working for a leading advertising agency in Jamaica as a junior account executive, I felt ready for a new challenge. Chas E Ramson turned out to be just what I was looking for. Two interviews later, the company selected me as their brand manager.

How long have you been in this Job?

I have been in this position for the past 15 months.

What's great about your job?

The best thing about my job is that each and every day proves to be different from the rest. This keeps things exciting and challenging. There is no greater thrill than to see your hard work being displayed on the market and in turn receive positive feedback from customers. Since working at Chas E Ramson I've learnt something new everyday. For me this job is all about relationships; our relationships with our suppliers and with supermarkets, but most importantly our team provides the best support system. Every single department plays a vital role in the success of our products, and it is really awesome to see everyone come together to help to execute the vision when I have a new campaign, product or promotion.

Tell us something we might not know about the Chas E Ramson brand.

Our name is often associated immediately with our house brand Ramsons, but we actually distribute a very wide range of products. Our customers are covered for every meal of the day. We also have a variety of options for our food service clientele which include our Kitchen Basics Cooking Stock , McCormick Seasonings & Elle & Vire Cooking Cream, to name a few.

Why are Chas E Ramson products attractive options for customers?

What you will find is that in every product line we carry there are options for all consumers. No brand excludes any demographic; ideally our desire is to provide an avenue where everyone can enjoy our products.

Our motto is Premium Products and Superior Service. We believe in giving the customer a product that does what it says it will do. Whether it means keeping your whites white with our house brand Sno White bleach, or turning you into a master chef with our McCormick line of seasonings and spices - we believe in giving our customers the absolute best.

Where can consumers find out more about your brands?
