Senior Account Director

Chloe Lillywhite

Who are you? Most of my friends would describe me as a bit of a nomad, having moved about 8 times in the last 10 years (most recently back to Somerset), but that’s because I love immersing myself into new places with new people. I also love spicy food, and my obsession with Korean cuisine hit a new milestone as I’ve begun making my own kimchi from scratch.

What’s your role? I’m a senior account director, which means I’ll normally crop up in the project management side of most campaigns/clients, keeping our Asana timelines accurate and generally overseeing the delivery side of things.

So what do you actually spend your day doing? Now that’s a good question…and the answer? A bit of everything, which is one of the reasons I love working agency side. From scouting locations for creative placements, exploring prompts on Midjourney to plotting out milestones in Asana, whatever our clients need, we’ll sort it.

Greatest strength? The ability to keep calm under pressure. I’d say I have a knack for sifting through the noise to figure out what exactly needs doing, when and cracking on.

Biggest weakness? My role often involves sorting a lot out “behind the scenes”, so it might not come as a big surprise that public speaking is what I’d class as my biggest weakness. More at home in the shadows keeping things running, I’m happy to let John or Sara take the limelight for DCW 🙂

What’s your favourite example of brand activism? I absolutely loved Dove’s Code My Crown campaign. The decision to open-source the entire library shows that longevity was baked into the idea from the start with an aim to change the gaming sector for good, it wasn’t simply a quick fix for coverage hits.
