January 1, 2007 was a Monday. I know this because Team Detroit, WPP's bespoke agency that handles Ford Motor Company's business in global markets, now known as GTB, officially opened the doors to their then-new Dearborn office a day later -- Tuesday, January 2. Three days later I walked through those doors as the Head of Digital Media Operations. This was a brand-new position both for them and for me, and it marked a significant progression in my career. They hired me to create one high-performing team from the digital media practices of the six agencies that were combined to form Team Detroit.
