Jason Megson, managing director, GPJ, UK said: "Mary will be responsible for bringing GPJ’s story to life across a multitude of media during an exciting period of change and growth for the agency. Her inclusion in our line-up supports a re-tooling of the agency’s senior team, including the 2016 appointments of executive creative director, Neil Mason and chief strategy officer, Jonathan McCallum."
Kabra will work closely with project marketing teams in more than 30 offices worldwide. The agency, which recently recorded a 300% increase in profit, has invested heavily in team expansion over the last 12 months.
