Mel Bush is an Account Director within the Global Creative Studio at Starbucks. She leads an awesome team of process lovers and client-herders who constantly have that ‘thrive-in-chaos’ attitude. Mel is responsible for leading global promotions for both Starbucks and Teavana, balancing strategic thinking and business partner relationships with an unrelenting promotional calendar. This includes working on Starbucks holiday nearly year-round from Red Cups to turning every store around the world red. Luckily Mel is a Christmas fanatic and that is just fine with her.
