Chief Executive Officer

After graduating from Cambridge University with a degree in French & German, Sarah joined Lowe Howard Spink. During her time there she helped develop famous and award winning campaigns for clients such as Heineken, UDV, Weetabix, Reebok and Olympus cameras. Sarah was promoted to the Lowe Board and was the youngest member on that for several years. She headed up the Agency's successful pitch for the Orange business which contributed to Lowe being made Agency of the Year in 2000. In January ‘01 she was promoted to New Business Director and in the November joined the start up Clemmow Hornby Inge which quickly became the UK’s fastest growing independent agency. In July 2006 she was listed as one of Management Today’s top 35 UK women in business. Today, Sarah is still at CHI where she is now a Managing Partner. Maybe the fact that the agency’s founding client, The Carphone Warehouse, is now the sponsor of her favourite TV programme, with which she is famously obsessed, has something to do with this….
