    “With her strong background in both brand development and creativity, we’ll see the continued opportunity for our clients and their brands to get an unfair share of attention. 

    “Our focus on team capability and world class creativity is the perfect mix for a high performer like Khia. Her passion for creativity and the commercial power it can wield in communications, along with a track record of establishing a workplace culture that allows creativity to flourish, feels like a homecoming.”
