London’s shimmering skyline was a touch brighter this morning. Not from an odd gleam of the sun, but from a notable shift in the sphere of global digital marketing. Jellyfish, one of the pioneering captains of this vast sea, has reeled in a prized catch. Stephanie Parry, with a commendable voyage of 17+ years across the stormy seas of global marketing, is now the Executive Vice President (EVP) of Client Management at Jellyfish.
Parry’s name has been synonymous with change, passion, and growth. She’s a seasoned sailor, whose compass always points to innovation, and her dedication to her craft is evident in her impressive tenure at large multi-market behemoths as well as nimble high-growth SMEs.
The corridors of Jellyfish will soon resonate with her ethos of creating “honest, human relationships”. There’s an art to balancing the commercial vigour with the human touch, and Stephanie seems to have mastered this tapestry.
Her collaboration with SheUnit promises to be a powerful one, a partnership forged to champion Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). For Jellyfish, it’s not just about changing the narrative; it’s about setting the tone for the industry. Gender equality isn’t a box to tick; it’s a mission to embrace. And with Parry’s history at Shine for Women – where she sculpted strategies to amplify gender equity – one can say, Jellyfish’s commitment towards DEI is in capable hands.
While at Mindshare, Stephanie showcased an uncanny knack for guiding global behemoths like BlackRock through labyrinthine marketing transformations. But what sets her apart? It’s her fervent belief in being “clientcentric” and fostering “collaborative partnerships”.
The world of marketing is a vast mosaic of B2B and B2C sectors. Stephanie’s canvas is diverse – spanning from the cultural nuances of the UK to the bustling streets of France and the innovative hubs of the USA. It’s not just about understanding different markets; it’s about immersing oneself in them, something Stephanie has done repeatedly, breathing life into marketing visions for Fortune 500 titans.
However, in the heart of this commercial maven, beats an ethos that’s rare. She’s a believer in (kindly) speaking the truth, even when the winds are rough. In an industry often painted with hues of grey, her commitment to truth is a refreshing shade of bold.
“I am so excited to join brilliant Jellyfish,” Stephanie shares, her voice filled with palpable passion. “A company with incredible talent, tech, and a genuine passion for client excellence.”
For Jellyfish, the journey ahead is clear, with Stephanie Parry at the helm. And as Nick, a colleague and admirer of her prowess quips, “It’s going to be fun.” Indeed, the horizon looks promising, and the waters, inviting. For Jellyfish, and for Stephanie, the voyage has just begun, and it promises to be one for the annals.
