She helped the agency win numerous awards, including Adweek’s Media Plan of the Year, a Grand Prix Lion, a Gold and two Bronzes at Cannes, a D&AD Pencil and eight Effies.

“I always believe you should choose your next job based on who over what. I immediately felt connected to the leadership team at Colle McVoy and the shared vision for what’s next,” said Henrichs. “In a world where competition is coming from so many channels, there will always be a need for what the agency does best: purpose-driven, transformative work that’s at the core of what clients struggle to do themselves but can’t afford to live without.”
