Venables Bell & Partners
A thirteen-year veteran of VB&P, Kate has played a pivotal role in the growth and success of the agency. As Managing Director, Kate oversees our day-to-day operations and divisions, partnering with leadership to ensure inspired people, clients and creative work.
Kate joined VB&P fresh from Paris, where she helped launch the Toyota brand in Europe. Before heading off to drink wine, eat cheese and run a car account, Kate spent time at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, TBWA and Saatchi & Saatchi LA, working across categories on significant brands and initiatives, including launching both the Apple iPod and Toyota Prius.
Kate nearly missed her calling in advertising, heading to UCLA Law School after college. She soon realized that ad people were more fun.
