A brand manager stays on the lead for a product manager as well. Essentially like a network to benefit the product.

Brand manager has more responsibility than product manager. Brand manager deals with building brand like Colgate but colgate Palmolive is handled by product manager. So, product manager handles only one product of the brand and product manager handles the whole brand.
