DDB's Fran Clayton jumps to Ogilvy

By AdNews | 5 April 2024

DDB Sydney’s chief strategy officer Fran Clayton has departed the agency to become AUNZ CSO at Ogilvy, AdNews confirmed. 

Clayton started at DDB in 2013, before becoming CSO in 2016. She then became CSO at McCann Worldgroup in 2018, prior to rejoining DDB and resuming her role as CSO again in 2020.

DDB Sydney Group CEO Sheryl Marjoram said in a statement sent to AdNews that the agency could not be more thrilled for Clayton in this new, larger role at Ogilvy.

"DDB continues to be a place that keeps its talent well past the ‘normal’ industry cycle and we are lucky to have had Fran here for almost a decade. She did a brilliant job at DDB and we’re incredibly proud," said Marjoram.

“We have begun the recruitment process for our new chief strategy officer, so stay tuned."

Clayton will remain employed at the agency until June 21.
