Annelies Engel - Dutch Account Manager
I would say that I was a confident, experienced, self-starting, hands-on type Account Director and Brand Strategist, with a good list of happy clients that I've worked for over the years. I have operated on both the national and international levels of Marcomm's - with a strong preference for the diversity of challenges and opportunities offered on the international level. I aim to meet and exceed expectations, teach, grow and learn through what I do and how I do it. I'm open and friendly and not afraid to roll up my sleeves and burn the midnight oil when needs be. I think for and with both the client and the agency, seeking the best possible results at all times.
