Shelley Rahe Bolsters Evoke’s Global Client Partnership Team Amidst Continued Growth

New York, November 7, 2018 – Evoke ( today announces that Shelley Rahe has joined the agency as EVP, Global Client Partner. Rahe brings more than 15 years of experience to her role leading and collaborating with clients on global engagements.

As Global Client Partner, Rahe will ensure brand engagements receive a unified, integrated approach across disciplines, audiences, and geographies resulting in work that pushes the boundaries of creative bravery and shifts market dynamics. She previously worked in client services leadership positions at CDM in New York and London for the past 12 years.

“Shelley brings an energizing leadership style to the agency and our clients,” says Reid Connolly, Evoke CEO. “She is all in, focused on people—her team members and her clients. She deeply believes that building trust is key to creating powerful creative and that powerful creative is vital to not just brand building, but to driving ROI and other business results. As a result, she leads her teams to deliver innovative, effective ideas and industry-leading work for her clients.”

Rahe says, “This is an important role, where you are the person clients turn to for big ideas: ideas that work. That means you have to roll up your sleeves, dig in, and sometimes find ways to move mountains. Evoke understands that and has built a network of talented people who are committed to the work. I’m so excited about partnering with this team to do some really great things.”

“It’s an exciting time,” adds Rahe. “There are so many challenges facing our clients in the industry today, in the US and globally. More than others in the space, Evoke is really capitalizing on those challenges by helping our clients navigate them and find big opportunities.”

“She’s a fierce collaborator with both agency partners and clients alike,” says Connolly. “For her, it’s simple: the brand always comes first.”
