With over twenty-five years of international marketing leadership experience, Sophia started her career in the hotel industry working for the Intercontinental and then Sheraton hotel groups, in PR and Corporate Sales functions respectively.

At Brown-Forman, she has worked in a variety of local, regional and global marketing roles, both operational and services, starting the work that led to the company’s digital transformation. Her most recent role was Managing Director, Jack Daniel’s Brands, leading a global team responsible for the long-term sustainable growth of the brand.

Her new role as SVP Global Marketing Excellence Director sees her lead a group that will enable people, brand and business growth.

Sophia sees herself as a ‘citizen of Europe’ given her Greek and Swedish roots. She lives in London with her husband, teenage daughter and two rescue cats.
