Jennifer Girdwood

Key Account Manager
Tracey: AKA the Captain of our Ship and the Marketing Master. Tracey is Brand Spanking’s fearless leader and founder. She’s been around the FMCG and pharma block a couple of times over her 20 years experience in the game and knows sales and marketing inside out. She held prestigious positions such as Customer Manager at Tiger Brands and Category Marketing Manager at Nestlé Professional before she decided to go rogue and start her own agency. Ever the adventurer, Tracey loves to travel and explore. She is also a keen cricket fan and loves to watch while she’s making a braai and listening to her favourite tunes.
Jen is our go-to-I-can-make-anything-happen-even-if-it-kills-me gal of the team. She’s a quirky hybrid of the creative and conscientious and is the glue that holds us together. She is our client-whisperer and is all about making things happen for the brands we serve. There isn’t a day that goes by that someone in the office doesn’t say “Oh thank goodness for Jen”. Jen loves animals, sports, fashion and spending time with her fabulous friends.
