26 March 2018 – Hall & Partners today announced the appointment of Gabrielle Bell as their new CEO of Europe. Formerly Chief Strategy Officer at M&C Saatchi, Gabrielle brings incisive creative thinking and great strategic skills to the role. Her considerable talent will help Hall & Partners continue on their journey to transform the business into a strategic brand consultancy.
Vanella Jackson, Global CEO of Hall & Partners, says, “We are thrilled that Gabrielle will be heading up our business in Europe. It continues our tradition of bringing smart advertising agency planners into Hall & Partners. Her vision and brilliant strategic skills will be an asset to both existing and future clients.

Gabrielle says: “Hall & Partners has built its success on understanding how communications work, and never has that knowledge been more valuable than now. We have exactly what clients are looking for in this fragmented communications landscape and I can’t wait to lead my talented new team on this journey from market researcher to strategic partner.”
Gabrielle will be based in Hall & Partners’ London office. Prior to joining, at M&C Saatchi she worked on high-profile campaigns including: Change4Life which encourages children to adopt a healthier diet, winning a Cannes Lion for the campaign ad; TFL’s award-winning The Tortoise and the Hare campaign which addresses teenage road safety; and Unilever’s Impulse body spray which she successfully relaunched, putting a halt to declining sales.
