Duke & Grace welcomes Linda Galle as its new Managing Director. The agency, which was founded by Bart De Waele and Dirk Sabbe in 2006, now has around a hundred employees and is showing plenty of ambition for a healthy growth. In order to steer this ambition in the right direction, the company was looking for reinforcement. They found that in Linda Galle, who is no stranger to Duke & Grace. Linda Galle was already on the Duke & Grace Board of Directors, as an Independent Advisor, for over a year. From now on, she will also take on an active role in the company.
Duke & Grace is an agency at the crossroads of creativity, strategy and technology. With clients such as Belfius, Partena, Materne and Van Marcke in its portfolio, Duke & Grace is steering a firm course. "In order to continue that course, we needed a more structured approach", clarifies Bart De Waele, CEO of Duke & Grace. "In doing so, we are making a split between the business for the next 12 months and the more long-term initiatives, whereby I, as CEO, will mainly focus on the latter. With Linda, we now also have the right person on board to manage the day-to-day operations."
With the hiring of Linda Galle, Duke & Grace is also bringing the voice of the customer into its board. "With more than 15 years of experience as a Marketing Director at various companies, I have a good understanding of the challenges our customers face today: digital has fundamentally changed the way customers interact with brands and marketing teams need to respond to that. I see it as my role to ensure that the customer always comes first in every decision we make, both at board level and in our projects", adds Linda Galle, Managing Director at Duke & Grace.
