Emma Morris, Head of Investment (One Publicis Team Samsung) & Managing Partner | Starcom
Emma has the pleasure of leading Starcom’s UK Investment team for Samsung across both Publicis Media Exchange (PMX) and Performics disciplines. Emma started her media career at ITV in a sales role over 20 years ago. She then moved across to the agency world and joined Mediacom in her first TV buying role working with the Universal Records portfolio in the main. When joining the Starcom family in 2002 as the only female in the TV team, her infectious energy, passion and determination to deliver exceptional comms for clients saw Emma’s role evolve and in 2011, she became Starcom UK’s first ever female Head of AV. Emma has worked across numerous categories and various brands over the years – from leading Barclaycard’s TV campaign ‘Too Much Month at the End of the Money’, Honda’s live skydiving ad on Channel 4 back in 2008, and more recently several successful handset and TV launches across all mediums for Samsung UK. Emma’s focus on delivering remarkable value and quality for clients has led to outstanding results across the board with recognition from clients, media partners and auditors for her contribution.
When she’s not leading the good ship Samsung Investment, you’ll find Emma with either her family or friends organising various trips and outings – living up to her nickname as Judith Chalmers and more often than not, being an incredibly mischievous Auntie (a duty she takes VERY seriously!).
