The criterion that determined Jared as the winner of the prestigious award was to clearly demonstrate that marketing can be used as a tool for business growth and should be purpose-led to drive positive change in society and towards the environment.
“I am incredibly honoured to have been recognised by the MAA and for Sea Harvest to have won two special commendation awards for our brand positioning and integrated marketing campaigns,” shares Patel. “The whole event was surreal and to see Sea Harvest competing against marketing industry giants was very special. It was inspiring to be around such amazing South African marketing minds. I have always been in love with my profession and to receive affirmation for the efforts is a dream come true.”
Talking about the award, Patel shares six tips that is the recipe for his success at Sea Harvest:
Talking about his sources of inspiration, “I look at the world around me through a branding and marketing lens. I place a big focus on improving my skills by reading books or listening to audio books by marketers and opinion leaders I respect,” shares Patel. “The level of excellence of marketing in South Africa is very high and it is very easy to be inspired by the work being done in our country. Being exposed daily to our diversity, cultures and people helps me to form ideas and helps my creativity.”
“Jared has been at Sea Harvest since 2010 when he started as a marketing graduate and has grown with the Group. He has demonstrated a great ability to use multiple forms of research like sales analytics, focus groups, product research, surveys, retailer shopper studies, trend reports and seminars, which he shares with the wider team. This strategy has resulted in a significant amount of market growth for Sea Harvest, especially in the very competitive fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector,” says Konrad Geldenhuys, sales and marketing director at Sea Harvest.
“Jared also pays attention to getting the best people and has recruited and developed an extremely talented team of young marketers straight from university. I have come to know Jared as a leader who has a consistent interest in developing his team,” says Geldenhuys.
