David Fox will be taking on the role of CEO of Ogilvy Australia. This comes following Andrew Baxter taking on the new role of CEO at Publicis Worldwide’s Australia office.
Baxter has been CEO at Ogilvy Australia for more than two years and in total he was at the agency for nearly 10 years, in various leadership positions.
Fox started his career at Batey Kazoo in Sydney in 1995 working on clients such as Singapore Airlines, Singapore Tourism Board, Audi and CityRail. He moved to Singleton Ogilvy & Mather in 1999, and was appointed executive director of the Sydney agency in 2003 where he was responsible for a raft of clients including Hyundai, Nestle and BAT.
In 2005 Fox was transferred to London to work on global clients for OgilvyAction, which then merged with G2 in 2013. Fox was last head of global clients at Geometry, and also sits on the Geometry worldwide board.
David Fox said: “Australia is one of the most competitive, dynamic and creative markets in the world when it comes to advertising and integrated brand communications. Ogilvy is one of the most respected brands within this industry, and includes the leading specialist capabilities in the market with outstanding digital, social, content, one-to-one, activation, advertising, ethnic, and public relations (via our Ogilvy PR partnership) offerings.”
