    Liz Taylor Appointed Global Chief Creative Officer at Ogilvy

    Ogilvy has announced that Liz Taylor has been named Global Chief Creative Officer. Taylor will be responsible for overseeing Ogilvy’s creative product across 132 offices in 83 countries and spanning its five business units: Advertising, PR, Experience, Health, and Growth & Innovation.

    Piyush Pandey will take on a new role as Chairman of Global Creative at Ogilvy and continues to serve as Chairman of Ogilvy India. Joe Sciarrotta will partner with Taylor in his role as Deputy Global CCO.

    “We could not be more thrilled to be welcoming Liz back home to Ogilvy,” said Andy Main, Global Chief Executive Officer.

     
     

    “Liz is a modern creative leader who leads from the front and understands that magic happens when we create and innovate at the intersection of our world-class capabilities and talent. I know her experience creating big, multifaceted ideas will only further strengthen Ogilvy’s ability to drive world-changing, life-changing, business-changing impact for our clients.”

    Taylor, who will be the first woman to hold the company’s top creative role, is returning to Ogilvy at a time when the company has won several new global accounts including Absolut, Enterprise Holdings, Pernod Ricard USA, and Zippo, among others.

    “There are always those people who you yearn to work with some day—and Liz is one of those people,” said Devika Bulchandani, Global Chairwoman of Advertising.

     
     

    “She is creatively ambidextrous and a sharp problem solver who shares our ambition to make Ogilvy the most creative company in the world, but most importantly Liz embodies both the goodness and greatness of Ogilvy.”

    Most recently, Taylor served as Global Chief Creative Officer for Leo Burnett and Chief Creative Officer for Publicis Communications North America. There she was a founding Partner at Le Truc, a new business model threaded across the Publicis Groupe.

    She previously held several roles at Ogilvy including Global Executive Creative Director before departing in 2016 to become Chief Creative Officer at FCB Chicago.

    “There is something special about being able to come back to Ogilvy and join a team that is taking this iconic company into the future,” said Taylor.

    “Creativity has the power to change everything and I’m looking forward to working with Ogilvy’s incredibly strong global network of creative talent to inspire people and brands to have an impact on the world.”
