Happy Monday everyone! Let's kick off the week by welcoming in a whole bunch of newbies to the W+K fold.
This is Ben, our fab new Planning Director. Joining us from Saatchi’s, Ben has made a ton of really interesting work for a ton of great brands. He led the thinking on brilliant, multi-discipline campaigns for the likes of Nintendo, Toyota, BBC 6 Music, Uniqlo, and Selfridges. He was also the brains behind E4's famous Skins campaigns. Interesting fact – he’s a Leeds fan.
Frankie Purvis joins us from BMB where she spent 4 years working on everything from tights (Pretty Polly), tech (Microsoft), trains (East Coast), cheese (Dairylea) and chips (McCain). She’s jumping aboard the good ship W+K as an Account Director. Apparently she has a terrible taste in music, so we look forward to hearing her playlist around the agency shortly.
Hot on the heels of Frankie is Nicolas Jayr who has joined as a new AM on 'Team Nike'. Nic Jayr joins us from BBH where he spent 4 years working as an Account Manager on Google, Johnnie Walker and ASOS. Nic's from France and lived in Barcelona for 3 years and is a huge FC Barcelona fan. Bonjour Nic!
And finally, for now, Kimberley Hammond. She’s slotting into our fabulous PA department as a creative assistant. Some fun facts: during her Fine Art degree she spent most of her three years painting fried eggs, she’s obsessed with shiny paint and she’s grade 6 on the piano but can’t play a note.
