Bullis will be tasked with overseeing and growing the agency’s existing and new client business across the region, responsible for the near 300-strong team in the digital shop’s London office.

She joins from Omnicom Media Group, where she spent more than three years in leadership roles. Most recently, she served as managing director of Annalect UK and EMEA, the network’s data, technology and analytics division

Prior to this, Bullis held senior roles in the media and marketing industry, as director of media at ITV, head of marketing and operations at Sainsbury’s and head of media at BT.

“I am so excited to be joining Essence,” said Bullis, “the founding principle of the agency: to make advertising more valuable to the world, for brands and consumers; really resonates with me, particularly as we face a digitised but over-cluttered media landscape, where quality and integrity are questioned.”

“Now is the right time to focus on the next stage of growth in the region,” added Essence chief executive Christian Juhl. “There is no better person than Jenny to lead that growth. Jenny has experience leading both brands and agencies, she understands what it takes for clients to be successful in the digital age and we’re excited having her lead Essence’s EMEA team.”

Bullis' appointment is effective immediately. She will report into Juhl and will be based out of Essence's London office.
