As CMO of Burberry, Sarah Manley oversees all aspects of public relations, marketing and advertising, working closely with creative director Christopher Bailey to embed digital across its offering, helping to transform the company into a genuine digital pioneer.

Those efforts have seen Burberry sell through its own social networks and use various tech platforms to successfully market its products, turning the company into one of fashion’s most dynamic, responsive and consumer-facing brands. 

Since joining Burberry in 2001 as VP of global PR, Manley has risen steadily through the ranks. Previously, she held senior marketing and PR roles at Polo Ralph Lauren and Yves Saint Lauren.
