rollout of McDonald’s premium coffee, the global launch of Microsoft Surface and Xbox One,
and T-Mobile’s first customer loyalty program. In his time at WE, Sells has overseen teams
driving integrated communications and marketing work with Volvo, Ste. Michelle Wine Estates,
McDonald’s, iRobot, Honeywell and driven a return to growth in North America during his three
