LONDON — Ogilvy PR has named two more senior leaders in the UK, promoting Jane Fearnley and Toby Conlon to the newly-created roles of head of consumer PR and head of corporate PR respectively.
Fearnley has worked at Ogilvy for nearly seven years, latterly as a managing partner working on clients including Google and TJX Brands across EMEA. She was previously a partner at Bell Pottinger and a board Director at resonate, and has also worked with brands including Puma, Bacardi, PlayStation and Tesco.
Conlon joined Ogilvy two years ago from Archetype, where he was UK corporate leader. He previously worked at Edelman and Porter Novelli. At Ogilvy, Toby leads international reputation work for clients including Tata Consultancy Services, CFA and Inmarsat and has grown a team of corporate specialists who work closely with data, behavioural science, B2B marketing, and sustainability experts.
Nicola Dodd, Ogilvy PR’s UK managing director, who was herself promoted into the position in August, said: “I’ve loved worked with Jane and Toby for the last two years. They are experienced, inclusive, and collaborative leaders with a modern view of PR and a drive to create award-winning impactful work for our clients.
“We have ambitious plans for 2022 and are building teams across corporate and consumer that combine earned first creative excellence with influencer marketing, behavioural science and data to deliver clever, creative campaigns. Jane and Toby are natural choices for these pivotal roles.”
The move follows the recent appointment of Charlie Coney from Golin as creative and strategy officer.
