She is known for thriving in new categories and territories, growing initiatives from the ground up – working with the leadership team to build the Bulletproof Amsterdam office is testimony to her success.

I am excited to have a seat at the table and contribute to meaningful change, supporting clients and growing the agency in what feels like an exciting new chapter,” explains Dove.
