Tess Wicksteed

Tess gets to the point quick. A natural problem solver she trades in originality, clarity and logic, delivering bold imaginative thinking. As Strategy Partner at Here she is dedicated to creating ideas with real cultural presence.          

For many years she was the major force behind Pearlfisher strategy offer as strategy director in both New York and London and then as EVP, while there she worked with a huge spectrum of brands from really big ones like Target, ABC, Disney, Starbucks, Coca-Cola, ABSOLUT, National Geographic, Unilever to movers and shakers like Blue Bottle coffee, Apartment Therapy, Legit Organics and Help Remedies. 

Although originally planning to be a clown, her belief that good culture matters especially in business finally led to a career in branding and an ongoing commitment to creating authentic cultural experiences. Short and sharp in all things, she balances refreshing bluntness with disarming humanity. Her presence on a project promises breakthroughs and guarantees results.
