I'm a guy that finds fun in building relationships. Of course, I love the creative process too - who doesn't - but there's just something about the process of creating belief and trust out from nothing. It's interesting, and real. That's how I see Account Management and Client Services.
I've been here for over two and a half years. And it's been amazing. I work in smaller department of S&S, known as Saatchi Design. We're the production arm which specialise in design, art direction, CGI, stills & film production, web content and print within the automotive sector. Basically the entire BTL spectrum. And I manage it all.
From South Africa to England, I made the move and entrenched myself in digital. I delivered high-quality digital campaigns, maintained high standards, enabled creativity and delivered on my promises. It was a small agency, but we had some really good clients.
I worked in the Marketing Team for the Superdry South Africa for shorter than I usually would have liked. That was due mainly to me emigrating to the UK. It was really great experience 'client side'. I learned a lot and grew considerably in the time I was there.
A great start to my career. From Social Media Intern to Account Manager in a few years. Here I was in an integrated role, doing it all and loving every moment. I worked on Samsung, Fiat Group and Amstel Lager. Tech, cars and booze. Pretty great.
