Liz joined Whitehouse Post
New York in the fall of 2018, but always had the goal of moving to London. “I've always loved London, it's a diverse and exciting city, as is New York, but London has a direct train to Paris!” she says. Having long admired the inventiveness of European advertising, she looks forward to immersing herself in it. “I'm hoping to benefit from the experience of working in a new market, especially one that is connected to Europe. The creativity of British and European agencies and the award-winning work that comes out of London speaks for itself. I also look forward to working alongside the amazingly talented Whitehouse editors in the London office.”
“We are very happy to have Liz join us in London,” says partner/editor John Smith ACE. “She has a gift for telling very personal stories, oftentimes tough stories, with compassion and generosity. We are excited to see what is next for her!”
