Having more than twenty-five years of experience in brand development, marketing and research, Anne brings the knowledge and understanding that only comes from interacting with a lengthy list of the world’s most prestigious brands across a wide range of categories, from vodka to travel to technology and finance, to every client and every project. Her CV includes five years as head of the consulting businesses for Interbrand in the US and London. There, she focused on integrating brand valuation, research, strategy and naming into a more holistic offering, which resulted in more inspired implementation and meaningful business results. Following Interbrand, Anne founded Onesixtyfourth, which she later merged into Sterling Brands’ London office, and recently relaunched in NY. Her early career was rooted in research, strategic planning and product management, first at Chemical Bank (now JPMorganChase) and later at Bankers Trust (now Deutsche Bank). Before receiving her MBA, her first ‘real’ job was at Grey Advertising.
Anne is also extremely proud of the work she has done for a number of non-profit and humanitarian aid organizations, both large and small.
