What were you doing before you came to Ingenuity as Business Director?
I grew up watching my dad putting together story boards for ads and have always been interested in the industry. When I left university I worked at Razorfish and Kittcatt Nohr before joining Ingenuity as an Account Manager. Since then I’ve been on a whistle-stop 6 year journey at Ingenuity while we have grown from 15 people to 40+.
What does your normal day look like?
Basically, my role is to make sure that our account teams have everything they need to succeed for our clients.
Every day is completely different (cliché I know). I work with a plethora of agencies, from some of the biggest network creative agencies in the world to brand new, shiny start-ups. Each comes with a unique set of challenges that I and my team at Ingenuity do our best to overcome.
