International agencies raided as new Managing Partner & Head of Project Management join

Karmarama Bolsters Senior Team

Karmarama has hired BBH Singapore’s Richard Powell as Managing Partner and 180 Amsterdam’s Michelle Hopkins as Head of Project Management, in a boost to its global offering.

Powell, previously Managing Partner and Head of Content at BBH Singapore, and Hopkins, the former Client Services Director at 180 Amsterdam, bring a wealth of global experience to Karmarama. 

The hirings come as the integrated communications agency grows its number of international accounts and continues to invest in supporting its clients’ brands across international markets.

Powell has spent the past eight years within the BBH network, working as Content Director at BBH London between 2005 and 2009, before joining BBH Singapore. He has worked across a range of global brands including Heineken, Vodafone, Axe and Google.

Michelle Hopkins joined 180 Amsterdam in 2005 as Head of Project Management and was promoted to the management team as Client Services Director in 2010. As Client Services Director she was responsible for managing the creative production output of the agency, including the global Asics account, and the DHL and Qatar Airways accounts. Prior to 180 Amsterdam, Hopkins worked at Mother for almost two-and-a-half years.

Ben Bilboul, Group CEO, said: "Over the last few years Karmarama has become the home of some of the best talent in the UK. But as we take on more international briefs we've started to look further afield for new hires to help add more diversity to our management team. 

“We're thrilled that we've been able to persuade two fantastic individuals to join us from senior positions in great international agencies. It’s an exciting time to be at Karmarama as we start working with more and more international clients and expand our global reach. Amazing hires like Richard and Michelle will help us improve our ability to deliver across any channel and any market.”
