Publicis Groupe UK has tapped Ben Mooge for the newly created position of Chief Creative Officer, Publicis Groupe UK.
The role, said Publicis Groupe, is part of their commitment to putting the creative product at the heart of the business.
In his role, Mooge will partner with Publicis Groupe UK CEO, Annette King, to drive a Power Of One creative vision for clients. He will have the reach and authority across Publicis Groupe’s creative community in the UK.
“Ben has a unique blend of talent: learning the trade with some of the industry’s best, the bravery and entrepreneurialism to start his own business and the experience of working in a multi-faceted group company,” said Annette King, Publicis Groupe UK CEO. “I’m really looking forward to having a key creative partner in Ben; he will be a leading inspiration to help nurture our creative community and I know that his input will be integral to ensuring we deliver the most effective creative for our clients.”
“The size of the stage for creative ideas is undeniable here, these are great agency brands with some truly exciting clients,” said Mooge, incoming CCO of Publicis Groupe UK. “But great work always comes down to the people – I’ve been lucky enough to work with some real talent throughout my career and I am so excited to be working with Annette, we share the same sensibility and ambition. I’ve also been professionally jealous of Nick’s work for years now, so it’s great to be on the same side finally.”
