Board Announcement

We have some news…

Paul Edwards, Leyla Hussein OBE and Mark Cohen will be joining the newly founded Advisory Board for Within International. Let us introduce this formidable team of talented, bold and expert individuals.

As advisors ourselves, we understand the importance of fresh perspectives and insightful conversations. With the Advisory Board, we establish a new channel of communication between our team and a group of excellent, high-level industry experts that will reinforce and complement our offer to our clients and our people.

The initiative, led by Within International CEO, Ruxandra Radulescu, started around a core belief: “our people are our most valuable business asset, and with the creation of the Advisory Board, we are giving the team access to the perfect combination of expertise, knowledge and vision that supports our agency’s growth and ambitions.” It is part of a broader approach to encourage professional excellence and advocate for greater permeation of business expertise through to creative proficiency and vice versa.

Our Advisory Board members come from different fields and have one common trait: their passion for business. We handpicked them for their outstanding background as much as their bright personality. Their readiness to join the Advisory Board is testament to the quality of our work and our client approach.

Paul Edwards, former Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer at DLA Piper for almost two decades, brings 25 years of board-level experience with a long history of working in the legal sector. Our CEO Ruxandra Radulescu sat down with Paul to discuss how values and culture are core to delivering exceptional work and how a luxury client experience forges lasting relationships.
