We are delighted to have Barbara Stewart join Metropolis in the role of Client Service Director, we’re excited to see what is in store for the future and, having someone of Barbara’s experience on board, we know that the sky is the limit. We asked Babs to introduce herself to you all in her own words. Here is what she had to say…
My love of marketing started early, actually really early, the age of 13 to be exact. While friends dreamed of being popstars and footballers, I dreamt of one day creating the next ‘Cream of Manchester’ Campaign (Boddingtons Beer by BBH). I was inspired by brands such as Boddingtons, Absolut Vodka and Levis and couldn’t get enough of it.
My passion is for customer centric ideas that ultimately deliver value back to brands and more importantly the customer. I have a natural inquisitiveness and passion for innovation, embracing new ideas and technologies.
I have had the pleasure of working in partnership with clients to deliver award-winning (effectiveness and creative) work with clients across most sectors including ALDI, eBay, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Nokia, Amex, Nestle, Sony and Virgin.
Leading multi-disciplinary teams across global markets, the work we have created spans Branded Content, Social Business, Digital Strategy and Transformation, eCommerce, Shopper Marketing, Direct Marketing and Campaigns (ATL, BTL & TTL).
My experience has enabled me to get a real depth of experience. My grounding means I understand the client perspective and their business needs, as well as having the ability to get the job done.
When I am not working I love to collect hobbies. My current hobbies include Salsa and Reaggaton, learning Spanish (which is taking me a lot longer than it should), scuba-diving and paddle-boarding.
My two addictions are the gym and shopping, I have more clothes and shoes than any one person could possibly need.
I am currently working my way through my Australian bucket-list and love nothing more than getting out of the city and exploring this beautiful (and warm) country.
