Sledge managing director Laura Capell-Abra is leaving her full-time role with the live communications agency.
Capell-Abra has worked at Sledge for eight years, starting as a senior account manager and working her way up to managing director in 2012.
Capell-Abra will continue to be involved with key Sledge clients, in particular Falcon & Associates following the recent three-way pitch win for Dubai Week 2016 in China, an award-winning project that Capell-Abra led in 2015.
Capell-Abra says “I have loved working for Sledge. It has been a great adventure and can’t believe I have been here for eight years – it has flown by! I have been involved in some fantastic events and I am very proud of what the Sledge Family has accomplished over the years and wish them all the luck for the future. I’d like to say thank you to all the people within the industry I have met so far – I look forward to working with some of you again in the future.”
Nic Cooper, Sledge CEO says: “Laura has been a fantastic employee for Sledge, rising through the ranks and having a key role in the development of the agency and its expansion in the UAE. We wish her luck with her future.”
