October 20, 2011 – Eb Adeyeri has been hired by Ogilvy PR’s 360º Digital Influence practice to lead the agency’s digital communications strategy across blue chip clients in the automotive and corporate sectors. His appointment is the latest in a number of significant hires made by the agency in recent months.
Ogilvy PR was recently awarded a Global SABRE Award for Outstanding Digital/Social Consultancy by The Holmes Report.
Michael Darragh, Head of Digital, Ogilvy PR/London said, “Eb is well known and respected in the industry and will play a key role in growing our business and visibility. His wealth of experience working with UK and international clients makes Eb an ideal fit for our clients and network.”
Eb joins Ogilvy PR/London from LEWIS PR where he led the agency’s digital and social media team. He has worked with brands including BT, Salesforce.com, Emma Bridgewater, International Basketball Federation (FIBA) and Lexmark.
Commenting on his appointment, Eb Adeyeri said, “For some time, I’ve admired Ogilvy’s approach to social media; from creating a blogger outreach code of ethics to smart thinking around influencer engagement. So at a time when there’s a lot of talk about how social media is bringing about a convergence of marketing disciplines, the opportunity to work right at the heart of this was just too good to pass up.”
Eb’s appointment comes at a time of sustained growth for Ogilvy PR/London’s fourteen-member digital practice. It follows recent appointments of senior digital strategists Kristin Parrish and Michael Cooper who moved from Ogilvy PR/Atlanta and Wolfstar respectively. Head of practice Michael Darragh, director of strategy Leo Ryan and EMEA director Kaitlyn Wilkins also joined the agency in the last 12 months.
