Ben joined BBH in 2008 as an Engagement Planner before becoming Strategy Director and getting experience across nearly all of BBH’s clients at some point, with time spent on making Google Chrome the no.1 browser in the world; launching Dove Men for Unilever; creating games for Barclays; helping Audi go digital and Perfetti sell more sweets.
After winning the Cannes Effectiveness Lion for Axe/Lynx, he then spent six months client-side at Unilever, helping them implement their European digital strategy.
