This June, we're recognizing Torre Kastner, who is a part of our Category Management team. Here's what makes Torre a phenomenal part of the Jacobs family!
Personal Sentence: Pursuing a journey of exploration (and taking time to smell the roses)
Life at Jacobs: I have been behind the locked door in Category Management at Jacobs for nearly 3 years recently transitioning from managing the Specialty Bath and Cosmetic Bags business to Vitamins. When I’m not working on my day job, I am helping to shape our emerging Digital Initiatives and planning company social events as part of the Shindig Committee (we plan the best parties!).
Favorite Part of Jacobs: The best part of working for Jacobs Marketing is the culture. There is always a friendly smile and someone to lean on within the Jacobs family. Jacobs also fosters a culture of ownership with one of its core values being: "Act Like You Own It," which means you can (and should) run with your passions or ideas and bring them to life with the support and guidance of the firm.
Life Outside Jacobs: In my free time, you can find me on the ski slopes in the winter and on the water during the summer. I travel whenever I can, enjoy trying new restaurants, and I spend an inordinate amount of time planning gatherings among friends. I am also a bit obsessed with the latest fashion trends.
What excites me about the future of retail: The retail environment is rapidly changing, particularly with the emergence of the digital marketplace. The retail landscape is ripe for innovation that can predict and shape consumer behavior – it’s a world in which anything is possible!
