Reflecting its commitment to recognise, reward and develop talented women in the digital industry, The White Agency has announced a number of significant senior female promotions across its business.

White has promoted a total of eight women to senior positions within the business, three of whom will also now sit on the agency’s Leadership Team.

“There is a perception that the digital industry is largely dominated by men and I think across many agencies and internal teams this is often the norm,” said Andrew Davenport, Managing Director at The White Agency. “However, this imbalance is definitely not the case at White, where we have been working hard to build and develop the talented women who have come to work here, across all of the areas of our business. The number of recent promotions is testament to both the skills and dedication of those within our business, and also to the agency’s commitment to nurturing talent from within.”

Agency Leadership Roles

Ingrid Prowse has been promoted to Client Partner, where she moves from managing clients’ day-to-day digital operations to a more holistic role allowing her to focus on delivering strategic leadership to drive clients’ overarching digital vision and business goals through technology.

Commenting on her new role, Ingrid said: “I’m really excited to take on this new challenge as Client Partner and look forward to being able to make an even stronger contribution to our clients’ businesses and to agency direction. We’ve built a great team here at White and I’m looking forward to helping steer more of it.”

Setting new standards in maternity leave benefits, The White Agency has also promoted a returning employee at the conclusion of her leave. Vanessa Lopes returns to the agency in a new position of Business Lead for one of the agency’s biggest clients. In this new role, Vanessa will be responsible for leading the account through technology transitions and relocation. Vanessa will also work closely with White’s MD Andrew Davenport on all new client relationships and the Sitecore technology partnership.

Sharon Queen also steps into a broader leadership role becoming the agency’s new Production Director after two years of excellent performance with White delivering and leading the biggest team in the agency.

“Ingrid, Vanessa and Sharon will also sit on White’s Leadership Team, where they will be able to make an important contribution to the agency’s growth, development and future direction” concluded Andrew Davenport.

The new faces on the White Leadership Team aren’t the only women enjoying current success at The White Agency.

Whilst in Production, Adele Graham has been promoted to Senior Producer and Mauli Ryan’s tireless service has been rewarded with a promotion to Senior Producer, Team Lead.
