Stephen ensures that we articulate our Redefining Media proposition and our ability to create better business value from media to help us attract new clients and extend our relationships with existing partners.
Business Development drives a substantial amount of Carat’s R&D, with many of the products and tools we use day in day out on clients being initiated during pitches.

Stephen enjoyed roles at Vizeum and Aegis Media, played a key role in the Post-Merger Office (following Dentsu’s acquisition of Aegis), before returning to Carat to run global business development and marketing.
