Grey Group Appoints Business Unit Director
Qaqamba Jacobs, new Business Unit Director at Grey Group.

Qaqamba Jacobs is a seasoned all-round marketer with the battle scars to boot, having experienced life on both the client and agency-side, from Cape Town to Johannesburg. 

Jacobs’ career started off as a dreamy-eyed marketing assistant at Musica, before going on to further hone her skills in strategic marketing, brand development/management and internal and external marketing communications – making her mark on brands such as Old Mutual, BP and Woolworths Financial services.

She carried her custodianship of brands with her agency-side, working at BBDO, The Jupiter Drawing Room and Joe Public United, where she handled accounts such as Google Africa, Absa, Nedbank, Distell and SAB.

Grey Group said, ‘Jacobs will undoubtedly call on her robust and diverse experience in branding, advertising and media, combined with her deep alcohol category knowledge to hit the ground running and steer the Hunters brand and the WPP #LIQUID team to greater heights.’
