Snell is charged with building integrated teams, utilizing creative, CRM, data, technology, experience, social and commerce. Reporting to Wunderman Thompson UK CEO Pip Hulbert, she will oversee the Canon, Specsaver and Mercedes Benz Vans accounts.
Previously, Snell was client partnership director at Valtech, handling clients such as the Very Group, Kingfisher and Rail Delivery Group. Before that, she worked at WPP and Possible.
