WPP’s Ogilvy has carried out another round of restructuring at the executive and organisational levels, according to media reports. Global CEO John Seifert has announced a number of promotions and departures as part of the process to create a new leadership team.
Seifert was quoted as saying: “Now may be a moment to move beyond ‘Next Chapter’ as a banner headline of our collective transformation, and simply accept the reality that change is perpetual … and that we will always be pursuing, in big and small ways, a shared agenda to better ourselves and Ogilvy in the face of all that challenges and inspires us.”
Among the major decisions include departures by Gunther Schumacher and Stuart Smith, and elevations of Philip Heimann and Antonis Kocheilas.
The ‘Delivery 2.0 team’ will include management lead Kathleen Kelly and chief technology officer Mike Tidmarsh.
