We truly believe in talent development – so whilst it’s sad to say goodbye to our very first apprentice, Illesse Uppal, who joined us 4 years ago, it is also a pleasure to have seen her develop into the social savvy professional marketeer she is today.
“It has genuinely been a pleasure being part of the WME family and I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive and innovative place to start my career. Although i’m leaving, it’s not goodbye and i’ll always be an advocate of the company. As a colleague said to me yesterday – ‘You’re like a stick of rock with ‘WME’ running through the middle!'” – Illesse
She certainly has been our rising star and we wish her all the best for her next big challenge! We are pleased that the talent is being retained within the public sector and I’m sure we will be seeing lots more of Illesse and her creative work overtime.
Its clearly not the only transformation we’ve seen over the years, If Illesse’s frequent changing hairstyle is anything to go by as she leaves us our WME mermaid!
