Now is the time to hone and harness the vast client leadership talent we have within Sea Containers to really drive our client agenda forward. Team WBA was my first home at Ogilvy, and an incredible opportunity to work with a wholly integrated team. I now can’t wait to utilise that experience, really getting into the Account Management Craft and working with the whole team across Ogilvy to ensure we continue to be trusted, ambitious partners to our clients, delivering truly brilliant work.”
