Bali-based eyewear brand, Melon Optics have appointed Ash Palmer as their new Head of Marketing. Palmer previously served as EMEA Action Sports Manager at Monster Energy. Ash is already out in Canggu, Bali with the rest of the team.
Press Release: Custom eyewear brand Melon Optics welcomes Ash Palmer to their growing team based out at the Bali HQ. From Bali he will run the international marketing strategy and coordination for Melon.
Ash leaves his role of EMEA Action Sports Manager at Monster Energy after 8 years to take on a new challenge with the young and fast growing eyewear brand. He has seen and played a major role in the development of Monster Energy from a small drinks brand into one of the world’s most recognisable Action Sports brands.
James and Neil of Melon commented “We are really excited to welcome Ash to the Melon team. He brings with him a wealth of Action Sports marketing experience and industry relationships all of which will greatly support Melon in the future with our lines of Snow, Sun and Bike eyewear. It is a big move to make to a smaller brand with a HQ half way across the world, but at Melon we strive to inspire a life less ordinary and Ash strikes us as the type of person who is on the same wavelength.”
Ash on his new move “Let’s be honest the move was a no brainer! Moving to Bali is obviously the stuff of dreams, add to that the opportunity to be part of such an exciting, innovative brand which creates really fantastic product and I had to jump at the chance. We’re a small team that has big ambitions, we believe greatly in what we do as well as the lifestyle we choose to lead.”
Ash has already joined the team over in the Melon Bali HQ and has enjoyed his first of many beachside coconuts!
