An Insider's view of FTD

What does your typical day look like?

As Brand Manager, I am constantly working to ensure we are engaging with our consumers and living out our brand vision via all channels. My day is 100% collaborative, between meeting with channels managers, reviewing new campaign launches - building a brand takes teamwork. When you have an online business, your consumers are shopping with you 24/7,

Kristin Byrne

Brand Marketing Manager

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

I have had the opportunity to build a platform from the ground up. Opportunities like these are few and far between in this day and age. FTD has been like a master class in leadership for me, and it has produced a fundamental mind shift for me on what leadership means.

Dimple Rao

VP of Product Management and UX Design

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

On our FOL team, we are creating a feature complete platform migration for all of our florist sites. This is a rather large task in that most of our florist sites look like they were created in the .COM era of the internet. Our new platform will provide huge UX boons. In addition to self-improvement, it may also attract new florist partners
