I’m in analytics but this is just out of sheer curiosity more than anything else. I’m kind of wondering how people get to “spearhead” holding company wide solutions, or, what else goes on up there

I’ve wondered that myself. I think they have CDs that they sort of float to different agencies that need help.

Depending on the holding company, they have finance departments, legal, HR/Talent, new business, real estate/facilities, procurement, maybe IT, maybe new business, compliance....

If you work on the Growth or Business Development teams (usually for the CMO) you can get going at a junior level.
