Melanie and I worked together at Sun International when I was General Manager of Carnival City. Melanie was based at Sun International’s head office, working in Marketing for the Gaming North division. Her role was to oversee marketing activities across the division and directly manage O&M (Ogilvy) across all properties. In addition, we relied on her to ensure that her properties in the division received correct profiling and exposure in the Group customer publications. She was a passionate and energetic team member, with a delightful personality, and built exceptional relationships with my team. She made it easy for the casino marketing team and department heads to take advice and direction from her, and her experience in Gaming gave her added credibility and value to our operation. Her progress in banking at the highest levels is testament to her knowledge and capacity, and came as no surprise to me as I watched her career progress.
