M&C Saatchi has promoted Camilla Harrisson, currently chief operating officer, to the position of chief executive officer.

Her appointment follows the departure of Carrie Hindmarsh, who stepped down from the role in July this year.

“I’m personally delighted that Camilla will be leading M&C Saatchi as CEO. She has the unique ability to build genuine and lasting relationships with people within the agency, across the industry, and with clients at the same time as having a strong strategic mind”, Lisa Thomas, CEO at M&C Saatchi Group, said of her appointment. “This unique combination of skills makes her the perfect leader to take the agency into its next stage of growth.”

Harrison has been working closely with Thomas more recently, as M&C Saatchi continues to develop and drive its integrated offering.

“I absolutely love the bones of this place and so it’s a huge privilege to become CEO. With the unique agency model we’ve created here and the exceptional talent within these four walls, I couldn’t be more excited or more confident about the possibilities for us and for our clients,” Harrison said.

She joined M&C Saatchi in 2005, and was promoted to COO in 2010. Prior to that she served at Wieden + Kennedy, Leo Burnett and WCRS and has worked alongside a number of leading brands, including Camelot, Associated News, Revlon, Heinz, Nike, Honda, and McDonald's.
