BBD Perfect Storm, the London offshoot of Poole-based agency Bright Blue Day, has appointed its first operations director to oversee all aspects of the agency’s operations and production.
Kieve Ducharme has swapped one storm for another, quitting her role at Quiet Storm to take up the role at the agency, which was launched in July 2013 with former Publicis Chemistry chief Jason Foo at the helm. Its clients include Britvic, Wiggle and Dreams.
Ducharme has integrated experience in branded entertainment, content and broadcast and was previously part of Hogarth, the production arm of WPP where she built joint ventures with agencies such as Grey London, J.Walter Thompson, Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R and Ogilvy & Mather, overseeing production teams across TV, digital and content production.
Ducharme is from Montreal, where she worked at McCann and Sid Lee on brands such as Adidas, Cirque due Soleil and MGM. She has been in London for six years.
Perfect Storm chief executive Foo (pictured) said: “Kieve will be instrumental in enabling us to deliver on our continuing plan for growth. She has incredible production experience and an a naturally entrepreneurial mindset that really fits with the Perfect Storm team.”
Ducharme added: “There’s an incredible opportunity to shape the expanding capabilities of the agency in delivering creative engagement across many different channels.”
