Scarsdale, New York
I began my career at Price Waterhouse (pre PWC) as a staff auditor. After working on an advertising agency engagement, I realized that I had a strong interest in that industry. My next job was at Young & Rubicam, as an Internal Auditor. While there, I got to feed my desire to travel, while also learning more about the advertising industry from the inside. My next role as Business Affairs Manager for the Direct Marketing group at Ammirati & Puris (a mid-sized NY agency which was acquired by holding company IPG during my tenure), catapulted my career. Within 5 years (thanks to some wonderful mentors), I created and defined two other roles, ultimately being promoted to SVP, Associate Director of Finance. I was responsible for all aspects of the client/agency business, including client fee proposals and agreements, client revenue and profitability, staffing models and employee utilization. I worked with some of the largest companies in the world.
