Since day one, PR has been a core facet of Droga5's influential, strategy-driven creativity. This is what attracted Marianne to the award-winning agency. In addition to overseeing corporate internal and external communications for the agency, she plays a hands-on role across the agency’s portfolio of clients, advising on PR strategy and execution, all in the name of making Droga5’s client work the most talked about among consumers and industry professionals alike. Joining the agency in 2015, Marianne’s PR leadership has contributed to Droga5 taking home a plethora of awards, including Agency of the Year for Ad Age, Creativity and Adweek, as well as Independent Agency of the Year at the Cannes Lions festival three years in a row and the Independent Agency of the Year title at the One Show in 2017 and 2018.

Prior to Droga5, Marianne built up more than 15 years of PR and corporate communications experience in creative, digital, experiential and direct agencies. She spent eight years with TBWA, most recently as its Global Head of Communications, and previously worked as PR Director for TBWA\Chiat\Day LA and NY. She moved to New York in 2006 from her hometown of London after cutting her advertising teeth in the UK market at experiential and digital agencies. Her first ever agency job was in Sydney, Australia—something that serves her well at Droga5.
