“Her track record of identifying core customer insights and translating those into tangible strategies and results is an ability we plan to leverage across the business. Having worked all her career on the client side, Wendy will no doubt add immense value to our new business prospecting and pitching process, given her understanding of what clients look for from an agency partner.”
