Prior to her stint at FCB, Sanchez was the ECD of BBDO Guerrero in Manila where she led Pantene’s ‘Labels Against Women’ and the ‘#Unselfie” campaigns.

“I love the point-of-view Dove has taken as a brand and how it has reshaped the way its own category connects with women,” Sanchez said. “And I love that I'm going to be part of its team."

During her tenure as ECD of BBDO Guerrero in Manila, the agency was named in Gunn Report’s Top 50 agencies and Campaign Asia-Pacific’s Philippines Creative Agency of the Year for 2014.
