Capell-Abra has worked at Sledge for eight years, starting as a senior account manager and working her way up to managing director in 2012

Capell-Abra was one of C&IT's inaugural A Listers in 2009. The annual A List celebrates the top 35 agency players aged 35 and under from the top UK event agencies.

Sledge and Capell-Abra will continue their relationship on key clients, in particular Falcon & Associates following the recent three-way pitch win for Dubai Week 2016 in China, an award-winning project that Capell-Abra led in 2015.
