Work history

Currently

Account Manager

Resistance Partners

Jan 2011
  • I was taken on as AM at Erasmus, and went on to become freelance Account Director at what became Resistance Partners when the company evolved. Running the agency’s largest and most demanding accounts, these highly reactive projects required successful management of a team as well as Management and Client liaison (at the highest levels). One account required my working and liaising with 5 other stakeholder Agencies to create and implement the brand’s marketing strategies. I worked closely with clients to devise and manage scopes of work, budgets and planning, and project management requirements included budget management and timely project delivery. I was also responsible for TV production management and liaison, digital / social media / website production and delivery, TV and print ad campaign activation via approval board systems and publication design management and delivery.
