We are delighted to announce that Leo Rayman has been promoted to CEO of Grey London. He replaces the outgoing Lucy Jameson, who is leaving the agency to pursue her own interests.
Leo’s appointment caps an impressive rise at the agency for the renowned strategist, who joined from adam&eveDDB as Head of Planning in 2013 before being promoted to Grey London & EMEA Chief Strategy Officer two years later.
David Patton, President and CEO of Grey EMEA, comments: "Leo has done a superb job over the past three and a half years as Grey London’s and Grey EMEA’s Chief Strategy Officer, leading us to current IPA Effectiveness Company of the Year, Euro Effie Agency of the Year and winner of the Marketing Society Grand Prix. Having achieved such strategic successes, he has been ready to step-up to the leadership role for some time.
"Grey London is in a very strong place. It has never had a deeper, more diverse bench of talent with strong creative, strategic planning and account leadership in place to fuel our momentum and break new ground, with culturally-ambitious ideas and experiences across platforms.”
Leo Rayman adds: “Grey’s culture is what makes us different and it’s bigger than any one of us. We’re now going to accelerate the Grey project, strengthening our position as the most progressive creative firm in London, with brave culturally-impactful work and acquisitions in tech and data.”
