Purpose & Overall Relevance for the Organisation
Digital Brand Commerce (DBC) creates the digital future by delivering a premium digital experience centred on our consumers. The aspiration is to define and build the global ecosystem empowering BU’s and Markets by providing a consistent digital strategy, direction and capabilities, leading one seamless experience across all digital touchpoints.
