Tanja Buwalda

Tanja loves to be challenged in marketing and has over 20 years of experience in a variety of sectors, including FMCG, Travel, and Health Tech, most recently at a director level. 

Believing that when life gives you lemons you make lemonade, Tanja used the recent lockdown to change continents, pivot to a new industry, and complete a Masters in Digital Marketing from South East Technological University, equipping her with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate the ever-evolving digital landscape. 

At Rethink Ireland, Tanja is responsible for developing and executing marketing campaigns that raise awareness of the organisation’s work and inspire people to take action. Tanja is driven by her desire to use her marketing expertise in an environment that promotes positive and meaningful change. 

She is a passionate advocate for diversity and inclusion, volunteering her time as chairperson of Board of Management of Owenabue Educate Together National School. When she’s not busy making an impact in the marketing world, you can find Tanja salsa dancing any chance she gets.
