Mandi is responsible for all finance-related activity at Fusion, as well as general office management. She takes care of AR/AP and billing, and works closely with the whole team to keep everyone on track and on budget. Her incredible organization skills keep the team running smoothly.
Prior to joining Fusion in June 2009, Mandi took care of Merchant Logistics at HealthPricer Interactive, managed the operations at EC Environmental Control, and was the Communications Coordinator of Corporate & Community Affairs Canfor Corporation (not all at the same time). Mandi brings a solid skill set and a passion for her job, along with an upbeat personality and a fierce sense of style to the team.
In 2010, she had the opportunity to be trained by FMCG leader, Unilever (Southeast Asia), handling world-renowned brands: AXE and Dove under their Brand Building and Customer Development teams. In 2012, she ventured into the exciting world of publishing and led efforts for Hearst International book extensions where her projects ranged from children’s books, young adult oriented novels, to titles such as FHM and Cosmopolitan – created for more mature audiences. During her stint as a publisher, digital was becoming more prevalent as print sales were starting to dip to its lowest point.
As a tiny girl with big dreams, Georgene moved to New York City in 2013 to explore the Digital Marketing realm. She studied Digital Media Marketing in New York University concentrating on Strategy and Content Management. Upon completing the program, she moved to Vancouver as a Digital Strategist and landed a role with the Fusion team shortly after.
Today, she brings in a new set of digital services for clients such as a stronger Social Media offering as well as a more efficient and cost-effective digital ad buying for clients. Outside work, Georgene enjoys being a tourist in her own city. Living in Vancouver, she has come to love the great outdoors and enjoys trying new restaurants all over the city.
