The Campaigns & Grey group has tasked Ana to strengthen its account servicing of high-profile clients, including household brands Pantene, Safeguard, and Gillette; Jobstreet; and successful consumer technology company Xurpas Enterprise.

Ana previously served as Managing Director of ProSolutions, the public relations unit of Great Wall Advertising, and prior to that, Senior PR Account Manager of DDB Group Philippines.

At DDB, Ana was part of the team that handled the rebranding campaign for PLDT HOME. She also handled the public relations campaign of the EastWest Bank IPO, and its “Dream Big, Win Big” promotion, with Derek Ramsay as the brand ambassador.

Content needs to be more dynamic and responsive. We see in Ana a strong leader who’d steer us through the opportunities that we can offer our clients, be it online or offline.”
