概要

A nine-year veteran of VB&P, Kate has played a pivotal role in the growth of the agency.

As Head of Client Service, Kate currently oversees relationships across accounts as well as our 50+ person account management department. And as a member of the Executive Management Team, continues to help us deliver breakthrough, effective work and have fun doing it. Kate joined VB&P fresh from Paris, where she helped launch the Toyota brand in Central and Western Europe. Before heading off to drink wine, eat cheese and run a car account, Kate was at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, where she helped run another car account - the re-launch of the Saturn brand. Kate had relocated to San Francisco from Los Angeles, where she worked on Apple at TBWA/Chiat/Day and steered nearly every one of Toyota’s models at Saatchi & Saatchi. Kate nearly missed her calling in advertising heading to UCLA Law School after college, but then realized ad people were more fun.
