CMO to CEO: Brewing up global business growth

T2’s Nicole Sparshott is infusing marketing know-how into her CEO approach at the retail brand, one that’s recognised for delivering a ‘tea revival’ in Australia and now has hefty global ambitions.

T2 CEO, Nicole Sparshott, is on a big mission: To take a 22-year-old Australian business centred around the humble tea leaf and all its trappings, and infuse it into the mindset of a new generation of customers and the rest of the world.
