In her new role at WTS, Warren will oversee a portfolio of accounts utilising her "considerable skill-set" in areas including strategy creation and implementation, resource management, brand development and the integration and management of assets.
“Catherine Warren brings a wealth of experience to our firm," said Gary Henkin, president of WTS International.

"It’s such an honour to be able to work for the best in the industry. I feel such an allegiance to the entire WTS family, and there’s nowhere I would rather be.”
