Power 100 Next Generation: Rachel Ovel, head of marketing, The Sun

Biggest career challenge ‘I was marketing manager on News Of The World when it closed last year. No amount of planning or experience could prepare me for the closure of a 168-year-old brand. Oh, and my role launching the Sunday edition of The Sun in a week.’

What the agency says ‘A rising star.’

Bext quality The ability to talk to anyone. ‘A trait I get from my nan.’

Brand passion ‘I still get a buzz when I see people reading The Sun on the train. I want to tap them on the shoulder and tell them that I work there.’

Advice to younger self ‘The customer is king. You won’t go far wrong if you keep that front of mind in everything you do.’
