Sandra Alvarez has been appointed as deputy managing director of media agency PHD.
She has been with the agency since its formation eight years ago, having previously worked for sister agency OMD. In 2010 she was awarded the Rising Star Award at the annual Media Awards and last year she collected the Grand Prix at the Award for PDH for its work with Modelez.
Jason Nebenzahl, MD of PHD commented, “Sandra has played a pivotal role in the growth that PHD has achieved over the past number of years; this appointment is not only a recognition of that commitment but also a reflection of her potential to shape the future of the industry in a leadership position for years to come.”
Dave Harland, CEO of Omnicom Media Group added, “In the recent past, Sandra’s skill has been lauded by the industry – from Rising Star to Gold Awards and Grand Prix. Her exceptional consumer understanding coupled with creative thinking and business acumen has been at the heart of PHD’s success and their ability to truly differentiate not only our clients’ communication but also the agency. We are delighted, as Sandra will play a key role in the next phase of PHD’s and Omnicom Media Group’s dynamic plans.”
