Hi everyone, my name is Julien Rubio, I am French and I am the Jameson International Brand Ambassador in Mexico.
I studied digital Marketing in ESC Pau – (French business school). During my first year of business school, I had a chance to do an international internship in Ireland with Jameson as a Sales Rep. This experience gave me my first insight into the spirits market, and allowed me to learn more about the Jameson Graduate Programme. After that, I finished my third level studies internship in Paris as marketing project manager in the insurance industry. I knew then that the food and drink sector was the one for me after these experiences, and I was delighted to be accepted onto the programme in 2017!
I am currently in my first year, and I’m based in Mexico. It’s been an amazing experience so far! It’s difficult to find many companies that can send you around the world to help them to build a premium brand. It is really exiting to move to another country, understand another culture and build relationships every day with new people in another language.
The position of brand ambassador is different in each country. For example in Mexico, I split my time between field and marketing, and I love this because that gives me a global vision of the business. I need to be creative and to have a self-starter attitude to develop the brand in this country because it is a new brand for the market.
I am very excited to see where I will be next year, and I know it will be a brilliant experience in any case!
