Wendy Zanker

Project Manager

Skilled in driving organizational enhancement through strategic vision, operational efficiency, and cutting-edge technology integration, my background spans luxury, arts & culture, and travel sectors, refining my expertise in project management and growth initiatives. Notable achievements include leading time-sensitive commercial due diligence for a top-tier FMCG company, crafting strategic blueprints for emerging sectors in collaboration with a Northern Ireland government agency, and guiding luxury and consumer brands on global expansion strategies. Holding a Master of Science in International Business from UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School and a Bachelor of Arts in Chinese and Economics from UC Santa Barbara, supplemented by extensive international academic and professional exposure, I prioritize coherence, synergy, and ongoing learning to catalyze meaningful change at Brandtrust, harnessing the transformative power of truth.

I am a self-acclaimed adventure seeker and travel enthusiast who is constantly looking for the next place and/or hobby to try. As a certified yoga teacher who both practices and teaches at CorePower Yoga, I embrace the holistic process of transformation and connectivity. My close sphere would describe me as reliable, mature, responsible and adventurous, as well as my deep desire to visit and help care for my family’s farm as often as I can.

As a Project Manager, I am driven by the desire to orchestrate seamless execution across projects from inception to fruition. While meticulously managing research logistics, facilitating strategic process to empower my team, I ultimately nurture trust and accountability in our successful partnerships.
