May Aboubakr – Family Comes First

An avid career woman and mom, May is our sassy New York office Group Account Director. She learned the ropes while working at the Montreal office for eight years before landing in the Big Apple. Making sure the agency’s culture stays true to itself abroad, she also continually looks for ways to make working more enjoyable.

Modest and ambitious, May landed her dream job right out of university. Starting off as a Graphic Designer, she started chomping at the bit after a couple years, eventually making her way to Account Services, where she flourished.

I love the countless stories advertising has to tell.

Now 11 years in, May is passionately driven by the people she works with. Together, they have grown into a quirky family where she’s taken on a motherly role, listening to all with an open heart. Keeping her ears open to all conversations and situations (and no stranger to tiny budgets and limited timelines) her priority is to make sure her work family is happy every step of the way.
