Ogilvy PR appoints Marshall Manson as CEO

Ogilvy Public Relations UK has promoted Marshall Manson to chief executive from his position of managing director EMEA of Social@Ogilvy.

The move follows the recent promotion of Michael Frohlich to chief executive of the group’s EMEA region.

Stuart Smith, global chief executive of Ogilvy PR said: “Marshall has repaid all the faith we placed in him with massive interest. Under his leadership, Social@Ogilvy was named EMEA Digital Agency of the Year – and he himself was named a top 25 industry innovator.

“I am delighted he will use his considerable talents to take Ogilvy PR UK on the next leg of its expansion.”

Of his appointment, Manson said: “Under Michael’s leadership Ogilvy PR in the UK has transformed into a multi-award winning, modern, earned media operation with creativity and social-by-design at its heart. I couldn’t have been more pleased to be asked by Stuart and Michael to take on the role of UK CEO.”

Prior to joining Ogilvy, Marshall was EMEA managing director of digital for Edelman.
