Global social media agency We Are Social has appointed Elie Adamson as client services director at its London headquarters.
Elie joins We Are Social from AKQA, where she has been working for six years, with the last two as group account director. Her experience spans a large number of sectors and clients including Royal Navy, Fiat, Unilever, Lancome and Xbox. Over the last few years at AKQA, Elie has focused on securing and building key pillar accounts for the agency, most notably Google+ and Mondelez.
At We Are Social, Elie will take overall responsibility for the agency’s client relationships, working with them to help put social media at the centre of their marketing strategies.
Elie will take over from We Are Social's current client services director, Nicole Ghobrial, who is relocating to the agency’s New York office from January 2014 to take up the role of clients services director there. Nicole has spent two years in the agency’s London headquarters after joining as a group account director in 2011.
Jim Coleman, managing director at We Are Social, said: “We are delighted to have Elie on board. Her years spent working in a top flight agency environment like AKQA is a perfect fit for We Are Social, and her client services experience is second to none.
“Nicole has done some amazing work here over the last two years and we’re sad to see her go, even if she is staying in the We Are Social family. She’ll be a huge asset to our team in New York.”
