Summary
Kyra Roest joins Burst as Head of Business. She will be in charge of accounts such as Hero, Organix, Old Amsterdam and Mentos.

As of today, Kyra Roest is responsible for a range of global accounts at digital production agency Burst as Head of Business. She will now be in charge of accounts such as Hero, Organix, Old Amsterdam and Mentos.

Kyra has previously held a similar position as partner at Dare to Difr, prior to which she was a partner at Bohemia Amsterdam. Before that, she built her career at a number of other firms, including The Valley, Isobar and Roorda.
