Managing Director
Portas

Caireen joined Portas in 2000 following brand roles at Paul Smith and Harrods. As Comms and Client Services Director, she led many of the agency’s flagship projects including launching Westfield into the UK, introducing a lifestyle focus to Mercedes-Benz, repositioning Louis Vuitton in the UK, and working for over 15 years on the global growth of Clarks and Clarks Originals. She became Managing Director in 2011 and continues to lead the agency with its mission to make shopping brilliant. Recent years have seen the opening of an office in Melbourne, establishing a consultancy offer and last year becoming the lead brand and creative agency for Sainsburys non-food.
In addition to managing the agency, Caireen has worked closely with Mary Portas and has had an instrumental role behind the projects which Mary has undertaken, including working with Save the Children to reinvent the charity shop genre, championing British Manufacture by setting up the Kinky Knickers brand and, most remarkably, overseeing the work to reposition and revision the British High Streets.
