Sheri Austin

EVP/General Manager

Sheri’s career has spanned all categories and channels including extensive experience across the supply chain, in both B2B and B2C marketing. She is a sought-after food and beverage marketing expert with a forward-thinking approach to digital marketing. A recognized thought-leader in branding, account planning, product marketing and customer development, Sheri is known for asking the tough questions, posing the “what if” possibilities and pushing for original answers.  She holds a B.S. in Marketing, an M.B.A., and co-founded network agency, The Alchemedia Project, in 2009 with partner, Tim Bade.  When she’s not marketing food, she’s preparing it for a household of boys.
