2016 One Show Public Relations Jury
Global Head of PR
Since day one, PR has been a core facet of Droga5's influential, strategy-driven creativity. This is what attracted Marianne to the role of Global Head of PR for Droga5's New York and London offices. In addition to overseeing corporate internal and external communications for the agency, she plays a hands-on role across the agency's portfolio of clients, advising on PR strategy in the name of making Droga5's work the most talked-about among consumers and industry members alike. So far during her tenure, Marianne's PR leadership has contributed to Droga5 taking home a plethora of awards, including 2016 Agency of the Year for both Ad Age and Creativity.
Prior to Droga5, Marianne has built up fifteen years of PR and corporate communications experience in creative, digital, experiential and direct agencies. Most recently she spent eight years with TBWA as their Global Head of Communications, and previously worked as PR Director for TBWA\Chiat\Day LA and NY. She moved to New York in 2006 from her hometown of London, and managed a stint in Sydney, Australia on the way—something that serves her well at Droga5.
