Conboy will work on Oglivy's Bacardi portfolio. She joins from Golin, where she was a director, and has previously held positions at Freuds and Mischief.

Commenting on the appointments Matt Buchanan, Head of PR and Influence at Ogilvy UK, said: “In our one-agency model, integration is all about mindsets and behaviours. So, we need leaders who are expert in their fields but also understand what it takes to drive totally integrated campaigns. By adding Anna, Toby, Rosie and Rosey to the PR & Influence team we’ve deepened our expertise in core in-demand services and hugely bolstered our integrated proposition for clients. And we have massive ambitions for our offer so we’re not stopping there…2019 has been fantastic so far and the feedback from clients about our new model has been outstanding. I couldn’t be more pleased about the foundation we have for 2020.”
