Saatchi & Saatchi London has promoted Marie Deery to the Head of Account Management.
Deery will oversee the Account Management department, reporting into Chief Operating Officer, Katrien De Bauw and replaces Will Nicholls who left at the end of last year to return to BBH.
Marie Deery joined Saatchi & Saatchi in February 2015 as a business leader working on the HomeAway and Marie Curie accounts. She started her career in advertising at Inferno before moving to St Lukes and Fallon in 2007.
Prior to her time at Saatchi & Saatchi, Deery worked at Nike working both on their #makeitcount campaign during the London Olympics and in Ethiopia on the Nike Foundation’s Girl Effect campaign, launching Ethiopia’s first youth culture brand, Yegna.
Marie Deery said, “I’m excited to be heading up account management and my focus will be on inspiring and enabling our people to be the very best they can be. I love the 'nothing is impossible' spirit of Saatchi & Saatchi as it allows our culture to recognise and reward entrepreneurism at all levels. I intend to look after our people so they are able to bring their best."
Katrien De Bauw added, “Marie’s natural ability to nurture people and challenge them to be the best they can be made her the perfect candidate to lead our Account Management department."
