Initiative, the full service media agency, has announced the appointment of Kate Bower to serve as global chief strategy officer, a position which will entail development of the agency’s US strategic operations.

At Initiative Bower will report directly to chief executive Jim Elms, who lauded Bower’s track record: “Her background and work experience is incredibly diverse in both the locations where she's worked as well as the client campaigns she's shaped over the course of her career.”

Highlights of Bower’s career thus far include World Cup campaign’s for Visa and a Behaviour Change project for Coca-Cola.
