Zenith Middle East, the media agency under Publicis Groupe Middle East, has appointed Alina Waite as its newest Business Lead.

In her new role, Alina will be responsible for delivering best-in-class strategies to clients that allow the agency to create innovative and stand-out work. In addition, she will also elevate the marketing and growth initiatives for the agency across the region.
