Independent creative agency Impero has announced the appointment of Emily Winterbourne to the role of managing director. Starting in September 2019, Emily joins the agency from FCB Inferno, where she was CMO.
This position is new to the agency’s senior structure and the appointment comes on the back of a spectacular growth phase for Impero - 40% revenue growth in two years (doubling its target) and a pitch-win rate of 70%. The agency is looking to grow its turnover during this financial year by 30%.
Impero founder and director, Michael Scantlebury said: "As we continue to grow, making the right hires with people who are on-the-up is the most important thing we can do. We've been looking for an MD for some time, as it is such a big role, but it was worth the wait. Emily has been on a very similar journey to us at FCB Inferno which is invaluable - but even better is how weirdly 'Impero' she feels. Can't wait for her to start."
Emily has been at FCB Inferno for nine years, where she rose through the ranks in new business and marketing roles. Speaking about her appointment, she said: "I am thrilled to be taking on the MD role at Impero and this is a fantastic time to join the agency. I am looking forward to the challenge of a new position within the organisational structure of the agency, and to bring my experience to the business and manage it through its next growth phase."
