Katya Obolensky Managing Director
Katya has over fifteen years of experience working at top advertising agencies in both NYC and London. Having started her career on the Microsoft account at JWT NYC, Katya then moved to London to work at M&C Saatchi – working across a range of clients including Hyundai, Currys/PC World, Public Health England, and Havana Club. After starting a few cultural initiatives, she then took on a network role helping to nurture the international offices as well as pitch for international clients – one of whom was BASF which she won and then went on to run.
When she was ready for a change, Katya joined VCCP in 2015 where she decided to try her hand at Telco, working specifically on O2 in London. From there she went on to run the entire fully integrated account giving her exposure to every aspect of an extremely multi-faceted brand. When O2 and Virgin Media merged, she was part of the pitch team that retained O2 and won Virgin Media, going on to run both brands, delivering award winning work and, most recently, achieving the most effective Q4 yet. Now in Singapore, she continues to nurture her interest in truly understanding her client’s business and further expanding VCCP’s APAC presence.
Outside of work you can find Katya exploring new restaurants, chasing her young kids around a splash park or hopping on a plane to explore somewhere new!
