Communications Lead at Ben & Jerry’s Europe

Kerry Thorpe

The inside scoop

Kerry joined the tasty world of Ben & Jerry’s three years ago and is responsible for the development of the company’s communication strategies, goals and procedures in five key markets in Europe: Germany, France, the Nordics, Benelux and the UK.

As well as tickling taste buds with flavour news, Kerry shares information about the company’s social justice campaigns. She has played a key role in urging Londoners to “Give a Fudge” about the mayoral election, hosting “YES-tivals” in the run up to the Irish marriage equality referendum and helping to tackle climate change with the message “if it’s melted, it’s ruined”. Like every Ben & Jerry’s employee, Kerry has the perk of taking home three pints of ice cream per day and bringing her dog to the office.

Kerry started her career at MTV, and was previously Head of PR at communications charity Media Trust.
