Ogilvy Worldwide CEO John Seifert moves on
Ogilvy World CEO John Seifert has announced his decision to step down. In June 2020, he completes more than 4 decades (41 years) at the advertising agency.
Seifert had joined the company in 1979 as a summer intern and remained there ever since.
In a statement, he said “Earlier this year, Mark and I agreed that we should begin the process of searching for my eventual successor, knowing that this process takes time and thoughtful engagement with potential candidates internally and externally.”
He added “I will continue to lead Ogilvy with all my strength until a successor is appointed and a leadership transition is completed sometime in 2021.”
