What are the daily duties of a Brand Manager? How does it differ from a Product Manager or Marketing Manager?

I am wondering what experience I may lack on the quantitative side: managing P&L, managing product lifecycle, product mix, etc. If I am more interested in the creative side of marketing, should I stay in MarCom?
