Jellyfish, a digital partner to some of the world’s foremost brands, has recently welcomed Sharon Harris as its first global Chief Marketing Officer. Being a marketing and digital media expert, Sharon Harris will supervise Jellyfish’s international marketing strategy across 30 offices.
As the company continues to stretch its wings as a global digital partner, a crucial area of focus lies in helping brands adopt digital transformation as the next business evolution worldwide.

She has previously held prominent positions at renowned companies with more than two decades of experience in spearheading marketing and digital media campaigns. Harris was the VP, Alliance Relationships at Deloitte, where she handled both the Google Cloud Alliance and the Google Marketing Platform Alliance with more than 4,000 practitioners across 40 countries.
