Drapers 30 Under 30 2020: Megan Hunt, senior marketing manager, Marks & Spencer

Age: 29

Marks & Spencer’s head of marketing for womenswear, kidswear and Christmas, Harriet Overton, describes Megan Hunt as “one of the most talented individuals I have ever come across”.

She continues: “Megan has a real knack of being able to get to the heart of a challenge or problem and solve it very quickly. She is also a very natural and able leader, which means that people very quickly follow her. Her passion for what she does is inspirational. It’s not often you find talent like Megan.”

Hunt joined the retailer in 2019 from H&M and hit the ground running, swiftly delivering a compelling back-to-school campaign that delivered strongly against its objectives.

She also took the lead on the M&S autumn 19 campaign “Dressing the nation”, which featured a variety of women from across the UK, including nurses, professors, and painters and decorators.

“Having to lead at pace with a new team and engage a huge variety of key stakeholders while getting to grips with a new company came with its challenges,” Hunt says of leading the campaign. “However, throughout I was keen not to lose sight of what we needed to achieve – and ensured I leant on my own previous experiences to shape my decision making.”
