VJ joined VaynerMedia APAC at its inception in 2019 and has helped grow the office to over 250 people strong. I am confident that their partnership will propel our rapidly expanding presence in EMEA.” Gary added

Daisy has been at VaynerMedia since October 2021 and in that time has overseen client accounts including Heinz, NatWest, and UNICEF

Daisy Domenghini, Managing Director of EMEA

Daisy Domenghini said: “Since day one, I felt at home at Vayner and I’m immensely proud to have been given the opportunity to lead such talented individuals and ambitious clients. It’s an incredibly exciting place to be right now. We’re truly built for the modern age of marketing, created from the consumer up, and our clients see growth and traction with us. Gary’s vision and ability are breeding a new tribe of marketers and creating a restless energy that means we’re constantly evolving to provide a better service.

I’m incredibly proud of what the EMEA team has achieved, both in London and across Europe, and I look forward to working with them and VJ to take things even further.”

VJ Anand, Executive Creative Director of EMEA

VJ Anand said: “I will really miss the APAC team, but I leave immensely proud that they are all rocketships and working with some of the world’s best brands. We have such a unique approach to creative and marketing and I am excited to scale it and bring my experience and a fresh perspective from APAC.

Here’s to exploring and building original, cutting-edge models of creativity with Daisy and the rest of the team in EMEA.” VJ added

The appointments follow another year of growth for VaynerMedia EMEA that has seen its London office hire 21% more staff, and win social and strategy work for Durex.
