Quite a few new additions to WCRS of late, so let’s take a moment to publicly welcome them on board…
Hollie Alexander is our most recent newbie. She’s an Account Director who jumped on the boat over from Canary Wharf and Ogilvy to join us. She’s previously been busy working on Philips ‘lady’ products, Coke Zero, Mattel toys, Kraft and also led the PR team for Flora Pro Activ.
The lovely Fey Daly has joined us as Head of Project Management to step into PJ’s God-like shoes. She has superb experience including having set up Project Management for Anomaly in the last two years and six years at Mother, so we’ve no doubt she’s going to do a fantastic job.
Then there’s Antonio Hidalgo who moved to London temporarily from Spain 18 months ago but liked Blighty so much he decided to stay. Antonio started working at WCRS as a freelance Web Developer last year and we’re pleased to have persuaded him to become part of the furniture.
Another Mediterranean man we’ve persuaded to join us as a full time Web Developer is Giorgio Scarfi. Giorgio came to us from Italy and fell for London and especially its nightlife – although he has a habit of falling asleep on the bus home and missing his stop.
Digital Art Director Howard De Smet recently returned to us after a stint at HUGE working on Unilever, The landmark Group and Diageo. Howard is a master in website design and user experience and is a great addition to the design team.
Felipe Faundez joins us from BBDO Chile where he worked as a Digital Art Director. He’s worked on Pepsi, Sony, Mitsubishi, Gatorade to name a few. He has exhibited digital art work in several galleries in Chile, most notably in the IV Bienale in the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (Chile’s premier gallery).
Tomek Drozdowski joins us as a flash/ motion designer. He’s worked with many talented fashion designers, photographers and musicians in Poland, the UK and Spain. His past clients include ING Group Poland and Sony Music Poland.
And to finish with a really rather belated welcome to Richard Williams who joined us at the end of December from The Red Brick Road, where he got his paws dirty on Suzuki and Tesco. He’s now getting to know bread and broadband very well, and has already written a piece for Campaign about his life here at WCRS!
Welcome one and all.
