Hi there! I am Urshela

As an Executive Marketing Manager I work independently consulting
for your business and provide my marketing expertise to clients.
Researches industries, markets, demographics, trends, sales
results, and other data related to the client’s products or services
they require.

I have been involved in the marketing industry for 20 years in the
Fashion Retail Industry. I specialize in providing advice on and

analysis/opinion/reviews of overall marketing strategies, marketing
costs and “auditing” of marketing campaigns and supplier relationships.

I am very innovative and a creative individual with a passion for what I
do. I am very optimistic and I am a driven individual with extremely
good motivational leader and management skills within my team
reflects this.

I enjoy the brainstorming appeal of group situations
but I find the pensive approach when working alone equally appealing.
I ensure and obtain maximum ROI and added value from marketing

budgets. As part of my service I also supply you with monthly
customized e-mail marketing trends newsletters for exclusive corporate

customers, based on current businesses they operate in.
From a advisory capacity I can review your current marketing

Part of my strength is to ensure client and agency follow these
processes and assist with relationship building.
