Career highlights

Nineteen years of not getting found out at Publicis, BMP, and now RKCR/Y&R. I have great affection for all three agencies, and special pride for Renault Clio's "Nicole", John Smith's "penguins", Home Office's crime reduction work and Budweiser's "soccertainment". Otherwise, being part of three management teams as we have transformed over the years at RKCR/Y&R.
