After two years of leading Omnicom agency network DDB Worldwide, Wendy Clark has joined the London-based Dentsu Aegis Network as global CEO.
“Following a thorough and considered global search, I am happy to welcome Wendy as our new CEO and look forward to working together to drive our ambitious agenda forward,” said Tim Andree, executive chairman of the network. “With her combined experience of walking in the shoes of the client, coupled with her leadership in running a large global creative agency network, Wendy is the standout choice for the role.”
In February 2018, Clark was promoted to global CEO of DDB, making her the first woman to lead the network in its top executive role.
“It is hugely compelling to me to help continue Dentsu’s rich legacy of constant innovation and industry leadership over the last 100 years,” Clark said in a statement about her new role with Dentsu Aegis. “I’ve had the privilege of working for brands and companies with powerful heritages and that’s informed my enduring belief that great brands and companies benefit from having a foot in their past and a foot in their future.”
