Having now been with Hope&Glory for over three years, she heads up accounts including Odigeo, Sony’s UK press office and European campaign team as well as Pokemon and RealD. Of late, a favourite campaign involved being stuck up a mountain with two LED-clad pro snowboarders to create an awesome bit of video content for Sony’s EXTRA BASS speakers. When she’s not at Hope&Glory, she’s either gazing adoringly into her little girl’s eyes, losing sorely at the bingo or watching Corrie.

Katy Ball

Associate Director

Katy joined Hope&Glory in 2016 following a six-year stint at Fever, where she worked with brands like NOW TV, EE, Deezer, and Warner Bros.
