So, who is behind Blanche Box?

Sami and Lucy are Blanche Box. Although they are a small team they make up for their size with creativity and tenacious drive to see their clients succeed.

Sami is a seasoned business and marketing leader who has been working in multi-million-dollar businesses for the past 16 years. Sami’s experience started on the east coast of Australia and saw her move to South Australia 15 years ago. Since that time, she has helped grow businesses and brands alike to achieve great success.

Sami founded Blanche Box in 2015 after seeing the need for a boutique style consultancy to help brands cut through the clutter and get the right advice first time. Lucy then joined as an intern in 2018 before being embedded in BB ethical approach.

Sami and Lucy live for creating new brands and communicating their point of difference.

Sami

Over the last 6 years Sami has been working almost exclusively in the health industry. Over this time, she has become very experienced in the nuances across APRA, My Aged Care and NDIS applying this knowledge to now be highly regarded when it comes to Health marketing and business strategy.

Sami’s experience isn’t just limited to the health industry, she first began cutting her teeth by forging a path for a state-based company expanding into the national market. It was not long after she was approached to run a national business with a growing export market. This added an international layer to her lens on business and marketing.

Along with her lived experience in the business world comes her experience as a state based and national non-executive board director in the NFP space for over 6 years.

Sami thrives on advocacy work in the paediatric and health sector. In her downtime you will find her in the backyard with her family.

Lucy has also been working with Food South Australia in digital communications homing in on her studies of content & copywriting. She has been responsible for state-based communications with their internal and external stakeholders via edms, social channels and promotional communication.

Lucy loves a challenge and especially enjoys deep diving into the digital landscape. She is the first point of call for all your digital questions and implementation.
