Summary

A born and bred Bavarian, Toby moved to London in 1991 to take a degree in International Business Studies. His diverse work history includes working client-side as well as for various creative agencies.

Learning from some of the very best creative minds in the industry, Toby worked across many sectors and cultures in both global account lead and agency management positions.
