How Hannah Fisayo Translates Technical Features into Commercial Benefits as an Account Executive

Today at the Sisters in Tech table, we welcome Hannah Fisayo, an account executive at Snapchat.

American by birth, Nigerian by ethnicity and British by residence, Hannah’s journey to tech was not through the traditional route. Hannah loved learning about politics in sixth form and it’s no surprise that she went on to study political science at Durham University. During her Easter and Summer breaks, Hannah would do internships to learn new skills. One of the internships was at Tech Will Save Us, a toy company that teaches children under 12 how to code. Hannah was an intern on the marketing team and through this, she learnt key skills which have helped her in her current role today. In her final year of university, Hannah browsed through LinkedIn and came across a job at Meta (formerly Facebook). Hannah thought she’d give it a try just to see and eventually managed to secure a job as a Strategic Marketing Partner. Two years later, Hannah moved to TikTok working as a Brand Partnerships Manager looking after CBG and FMCG clients.

Hannah is now an Account Executive at Snapchat, looking after beauty, luxury and fashion clients in Europe. Listen to this episode to find out more about Hannah’s role and journey into the Tech World.
