Leading global brand extension agency Beanstalk has promoted Allison Ames to president of the company. In her new role, Ames will assume many of the day-to-day leadership and operational responsibilities for the company globally.
She will also work alongside CEO Michael Stone on many of the company’s short and long-term strategic growth initiatives.
Ames spent the past two years as president, North America, where she was responsible for all clients operating in that region, while also driving the development and execution of the agency’s growth initiatives. Previously, she was SVP, brand management for the company.
“Allison’s vision, passion and considerable expertise have played a central role in our agency’s growth. She has greatly contributed to driving Beanstalk to be the company we are today,” said Stone. “As our short and long-term strategic growth initiatives become my main focus, I am looking forward to continuing to work alongside Allison to move Beanstalk forward and realize the many exciting opportunities that lie ahead of us.”
“I look forward to the opportunity to build on my work in North America and to now also focus on our international business,” said Ames. “Throughout the past several years, we have upped our game in the services that we provide, the clients that we represent, and the truly exceptional work that we do. I am very proud of our talent at Beanstalk. This is a pivotal time for the agency and our place in the marketing/communications arena, and we have great plans to extend Beanstalk into new and innovative areas.”
