Anna Edwards – Senior Consultant

After leaving Oxford in 2000, Anna went in to the advertising industry, working at two top 10 London agencies, WCRS and M&C Saatchi, and leading the award-winning Olympic Delivery Authority campaign in the run-up to London 2012 among other accounts.

During her time at M&C, Anna played an active role in the agency’s graduate recruitment scheme while finding the time to complete the IPA’s Excellence Diploma.

Anna’s headhunting career began in 2012, when she set up the planning and strategy team at boutique firm, The Longhouse. From there, she moved to The Talent Business and then to Grace Blue in 2015, where she set up and oversaw the rapid growth of the London office’s brand practice (extending across EMEA) and worked on executive and board level briefs for clients including Amazon, LEGO and Bacardi.

Anna joined EP Partners in 2019 to use her C-Suite search experience and deep knowledge of the media, marketing and communications space to help sports organisations succeed in the era of the attention economy.  Anna is also currently studying part-time for an MA in Coaching & Mentoring and is a speaker at events including the Marketing Academy Fellowship Programme and AdWeek, as well as acting as a speed mentor for the IAA.
