Her unique mix of in-house and agency experience translates as a perfect match for our clients and her skills will bolster our rapidly growing team as we further extend our award-winning consumer work. We've deliberately cultivated as many media clients as brand clients and look forward to benefitting from Jerina’s talent."

It has grown at an incredible rate since its launch in 2009 and continues to expand its portfolio of high profile clients – and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon!
