Sarah Howell

Managing Director
Atlanta, GA


Sarah worked in advertising production for nearly 20 years before joining APR. From her industry start as an award-winning print producer to her previous role overseeing the operational and financial management of WPP’s Hogarth and Ogilvy partnership in Atlanta and Chicago, Sarah’s job has always been to bring order out of chaos and clear the path for the team to create remarkable work – delivered on time and, whenever possible, under budget.

 During her tenure with WPP, Sarah managed print, digital and video production for Ogilvy Atlanta and Chicago, and acted as the Studio Global Brand Manager and Operations Lead for clients such as InterContinental Hotels Group and The Coca-Cola Company. She has managed studio teams, established processes across the globe and partnered with client marketing leaders to conduct industry analyses and opportunity assessments. Sarah has then taken these learnings to develop production plans with the objective of bringing programs to local markets successfully. 

Prior to joining WPP, Sarah headed up the studio business operations at BBDO Atlanta, establishing the model for their “Cafeteria” studio business unit and managing print production for the agency’s key accounts.

 Sarah’s career has been focused on finding efficiencies, determining new ways of working, boosting profits and carving out value for internal and external clients.
