Head of Strategy & Insight
Stevie has worked in a strategic and research capacity for over 14 years, starting out at Leo Burnett and Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney, where she worked across multiple accounts including Diageo, P&G, Lexus, and Emirates. In 2010, she moved to Jakarta, Indonesia and ran the global and regional strategy for multiple Unilever accounts as well as several local FMCG brands.

Upon discovering she was not entirely cut out for politics, Stevie ventured over to Singapore, where she worked out of award winning agencies Grey and Edelman to lead the global strategy for several GSK brands and the global Unilever account respectively. Here she worked alongside Edelman Intelligence designing and commissioning unique brand studies.
Currently, Stevie resides in Auckland and leads the research and insights team across the Dentsu Network.
