As head of account management, she will use her ability to galvanize teams, drive business growth and deliver operational excellence to oversee client partnerships and advance ground-breaking ideas. Woxland reports to Henrichs.

Formerly VP, group account director, Fransen is being elevated to lead the public relations practice and further integrate Exponent’s exceptional creativity even more deeply into work across the agency to make an exponential impact for brands. He reports to and will work closely with Woxland.

Mans is a digital and operational thought leader with more than 10 years of experience inspiring both clients and teams alike. Reporting to Henrichs, she fills a new role that allows her to work with the agency’s project management and account management teams to help solve business problems with creative, technology-led thinking. She will also help lead the agency’s digital strategy, support new business and manage key accounts.
