Regional Director Europe / J. Walter Thompson Europe
I recently stepped down from my full time role and now remain as a part-time Regional Director, overseeing Greece, Belgium and other projects.
Until March 2016 I was Regional Director in Europe, with responsibility for Russia, Turkey, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Greece, Austria, Czech Republic and Belgium. I also oversaw our Affiliates in Romania, Bulgaria, the Baltics, the Adriatics and the CIS. In addition, I headed up Geometry@JWT, our shopper marketing joint venture with Geometry Global.
Previously I was a Global Business Director at J. Walter Thompson on Bayer and Kraft. Before that I was Regional Director of Bates for South Asia, based in Singapore, having previously been Deputy MD of Bates London.
I started my advertising career at DDB in London. It's been my great fortune to work with great people in teams that have won the Cannes Film Grand Prix (Volkswagen); Asian Advertiser of the Year (Nokia) and UK Advertiser of the Year (Woolworths) plus a whole host of awards at Cannes, D&AD, One Show etc (for Heinz, Volkswagen, Land Rover).
