Entrepreneur & Renown Advertising Consultant
Reading English at Somerville College, Oxford kindled a love affair with theater and led Cindy to begin her early career in the UK as a theater publicist, until an audience member’s observation that ‘You could sell ice to an Eskimo’ led her to make the move into advertising. In 1996 she moved to Singapore to help start up and run BBH Asia-Pacific, where she ran the Levi’s Asia-Pacific business, and in 1998 she moved to New York to start up BBH in the US, which began as Cindy in a room with a phone. Four years later, BBH New York had won clients like Johnnie Walker, Unilever and Levi’s, and was named Adweek’s Eastern Agency of the Year. In 2003 Cindy was voted Advertising Woman of the Year.
Today she continues to work in branding, marketing and business innovation as a consultant while also operating at the cutting edge of digital and the internet as a tech entrepreneur.
