Chris Vanderkolk

Head of Marketing

Figured

Hi I’m Chris, Over the past ten years I’ve steadily been building a career in which I’ve been fortunate to work for some of the worlds truly incredible brands. I completed my marketing degree at Victoria and went straight into sales at LEGO, I’ve been a ski instructor at Cardrona and Key Account Manager for Icebreaker before transitioning into marketing at Xero. I’m now running marketing for Figured, one of NZs rising agri tech stars. Over the last decade I’ve gained the unique perspective of being in the salesman's shoes and the marketers seat, I’ve learned that great sales people and great marketers are usually very similar, and sometimes, simply understanding each other's world is key to sales and marketing success.
