An expert in account services, branding, digital marketing, creative strategy and integrated marketing, Claudia Adamo’s career has spanned more than decade across large corporations from Pick ‘n Pay to Edgars, and even more recently Lowe and Partners.
Claudia has shown the ability to adjust and succeed in varying business climates, and even her beginnings in the industry were less than unassuming with her first role being that of a Business Director at 4D Euro RSCG, where she was appointed to the Executive Management Committee (EXCO) at the age of 27; the company’s youngest EXCO member to date.
Add to that, the young luminary was nominated as one of the “Top 200 Young South Africans to take to lunch” back in 2011, and was twice nominated for the prestigious New Broom Award in Ad Focus for outstanding achievements by an individual under 30. .”
Claudia believes that being part of a smaller team allows greater success in securing and remaining true to an agency’s culture – communication, collaboration and teamwork often work better in smaller environments. For her, flexibility within an agency is crucial. “It’s a vital ingredient in growing fresh and new ideas. And, ideas have the power to change the world; the way we think and the way we behave. They are the very reason I got into this industry to begin with.”
