OgilvyOne London Promotes Clare Lawson to Joint Head of Client Services

LONDON, 23 September 2009 – Leading digital and direct agency OgilvyOne London announces the appointment of Clare Lawson as joint client service director with responsibility for account management and new business.

clarelawsonClare, considered a rising star within the award-winning agency, is currently new business director at OgilvyOne, a role she will retain. She will begin her new job immediately, reporting into OgilvyOne’s Managing Director Sam Williams-Thomas and working alongside long-time joint client services director Chris Slough.

Sam commented: “At OgilvyOne London we like to reward talent and commitment and Clare’s latest promotion recognizes the skills she has brought to the agency, particularly in the all-important area of account management. She is also one of the industry’s foremost experts in online CRM and in the B2B sector.

“For someone barely into their thirties, she has enjoyed a remarkably rapid rise through the ranks: she was a Business Partner at 28, new business director at 29 and now her latest promotion to CSD. We are very excited   Acting’s loss [Claire trained to be an actress before going to university] is most definitely OgilvyOne’s gain.”

After gaining a First Class Honours degree in Business Management from Newcastle University, Clare started her career in advertising at Newcastle agency Martin Tait Redheads.

She later moved to London joining OgilvyOne in 2003, starting as Account Manager on the BT Business account. Since then she has worked on many other key OgilvyOne brands including BT Tradespace, British Gas Business and, most recently, Zurich Connect.

Outside of work Clare is an ardent Newcastle United fan who likes to keep in shape walking and running.
