Marketing Mix: Pen Portrait - Lisa Merrick, marketing director at Tetley

This lady is bright as a button and quick on the uptake.

At first glance I thought she had put a crossing out within her signature (not a good sign) but now realise she was dotting an 'i' without taking her pen off the page - a pointer to a gritty determination and a refusal to follow a prescribed route if she can come up with a better way.

The layout is 'different', but works well, reflecting a knowledge of presentation and a desire to be different.

Matt Small, account director at Brandhouse WTS, Tetley's branding agency, says: Having worked with Lisa over the past two years, we've certainly enjoyed the bold, creative side to her nature. If developing truly innovative brands is about approaching things in a different way, she does it.
