On January 5, 2015, we were excited to welcome Sara Bamber to the Arnold team as Head of Strategy, New York. Bamber will report to New York President Peter Grossman and be tasked with leading and growing the office’s integrated strategy team. As Head of Strategy, Bamber will have responsibility for all brands across the client portfolio and be a key player in driving the office’s aggressive growth agenda.
