Director of Operations EMEA
Mary started her career as a receptionist at a small boutique post production house in Soho, progressing through the ranks to produce long and short form video content.
Mary then joined Ogilvy Advertising as a producer, where she progressed to running the in-house post production facility, producing all forms of moving image content from shoot management and production to post and adaptation for global brands.
Mary helped to build a solid and successful in house production facility, offering and servicing all internal requirements from high end TVC finishing, offline editing, digital content & displays to localisation & adaptation. During this period Mary was exposed to working with all global brands that Ogilvy Advertising group companies serviced, with all size budgets.
Mary has spent the last 7 years at Smoke & Mirrors/Tag, where she built and managed large production teams creating, adapting and localising moving image assets for global brands. As a member of the senior management team, Mary’s role was broad – from working with internal teams on design and implementation of highly efficient best practice internal workflows to client facing tasks such as supporting new business efforts and building end-to-end localisation solutions, dealing with both client and agency stakeholders.
