Bringing invaluable marketing and creative experience to her role, Nancy Attoh produces inspiring events which meld commerce with the creative. Starting her career in the UK in 2000 at communications giant Saatchi & Saatchi, Nancy coordinated projects with European agencies to launch new healthcare products.
Returning to Australia she joined the marketing team at David Jones with a focus on fashion retail. Keen to expand her knowledge of the industry, Nancy then studied fashion in the UK.
Back in Australia Nancy worked alongside respected creatives, styling for leading publications and brands for advertising shoots and fashion shows. This is where her passion for negotiating the delicate balance between the commercial and the creative was fine-tuned. Her experience in both fields as well as a growing interest in architecture and interior design led her to join The Arc Agency in 2011.
Nancy is driven to produce engaging events which are now the industry’s most talked about forums, connecting specifiers with architectural product suppliers.
