Ogilvy MD to join Jones Knowles Ritchie

Ogilvy Advertising managing director Guy Lambert is leaving the agency to join design consultancy Jones Knowles Ritchie (JKR).

Lambert takes the title managing director at JKR and will take up the position in May. He will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the company.

Ogilvy Advertising has not yet named a replacement for Lambert. Ogilvy Group UK chairman and chief executive Gary Leih will take up the responsibilities for the time being.

Lambert was appointed MD of Ogilvy Advertising in late 2006 and was previously joint managing director of sister direct marketing agency OgilvyOne London.

While MD, Lambert oversaw a restructuring of both the client service and creative departments.

Leih says: “Guy has contributed an enormous amount to the re-establishment of Ogilvy Advertising as a strong brand in a tough market and under tough conditions.”

Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide recently appointed Gerry Human as executive creative director – Unilever Worldwide with special focus on Dove.
