Consumer & Market Insights Director Africa
Stacey has 15 years’ experience in Unilever and leads the Africa Consumer Insights Team - a multi-country team that spans across South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria and CDI.
She is responsible for showing the business where and how to win – leveraging consumer and shopper insights to ensure the business provides solutions to the unmet needs of people across the continent. She has worked across mix development and market deployment, giving her holistic vision and capabilities in end-to-end business leadership.
She is energised by unique challenges that demand creative solutions – and strongly believes that Africa’s VUCA context is a breeding ground for innovative approaches.
Notable highlights include her work on the development of Unilever’s internal AI platform which has become a critical component of how key business stores and democratises across the business. Under her leadership, the Africa insights team has become recognised as thought-leaders and pioneers in the research industry in areas such as mobile surveys and crowdsourcing.
Her greatest passion and achievement is being mum to two beautiful boys.
