Blessed with a great childhood in the Lake District in North-West England, I was exposed to all the benefits that fresh air and an outdoors life can provide.
Here my days were subject to structure, seasonal planning, organization and preparation. Serving me well in my university before I took up a role at a training facility as a lecturer and designer of business administration courses.
During a vacation in Singapore I got exposure to the advertising industry – and a taste for Asia. This led to an entry-level role with Dentsu Young & Rubicam, Singapore, where I began putting theory into practice.
I began navigating the agency world and joined Ogilvy in early 2001. I brought my organizational and planning attributes to bear, as I moved upwards with operational roles, delivering efficiencies and savings for agency and clients alike, designing and implementing processes, workflow and financial tracking systems throughout Asia Pacific.
After 17 years of calling Singapore and Hong Kong my home, I was offered a new and exciting role in New York overseeing RedWorks North America.
My WPP journey continues with H&O. The synergy between two great entities means an exciting time for our business and arms me with a greater array of tools to ensure that the structure, planning and organization I can deliver will drive greater success for our clients and their brands.
