NEW YORK — Finn Partners has promoted global marketing communications director Celia Jones to global chief CMO.

In the newly created role, Jones will be responsible for advancing Finn’s reputation for integrated marketing and creative services, amplifying thought leadership and novel platforms for new business growth, driving integration, and leading internal communications for the firm’s 1,400-plus employees.

Jones joined Finn in 2021 as the agency’s first global director of marketing communications after serving as CEO of independent agency The Escape Pod. Before that, she led brand marketing and PR at Havas.

Jones’ appointment comes on the heels of two consecutive years of double-digit growth, aggressive global expansion, and enhanced firepower across key sectors and integrated capabilities at Finn.

“From Day one, Celia embraced her role as a passionate brand advocate, storyteller, culture connector and purpose-driven leader, dedicated to highlighting the best of Finn Partners to the industry,” said founding partner and CEO Peter Finn. “She has brought to Finn her proven experience as a change agent. And most importantly, she embodies our values and has played a pivotal role in bringing our core sense of purpose to the forefront of our marketing efforts, as a magnet for people and clients who share our mission and values. As CMO, Celia is the ideal person to steward our brand into the next stage of global growth.”
