Ogilvy UK Hires Elaine Grell as Chief People Officer

Ogilvy UK announced today that they were appointing Elaine Grell as chief people officer. A renowned HR leader Elaine brings an award-winning strategic approach coupled with deep cultural expertise and will work with Ogilvy’s people team across all five areas of the business – including Advertising, Experience, PR, Consulting and Health.

She has a wide experience and is passionate about continuing to enhance the employee experience. In addition, Elaine has an MBA, a CIPD Fellowship, and is a Trustee for the Springboard Charity, who mentors emerging talent and helps young people and those from disadvantaged groups get into the hospitality industry.

Elaine will partner Fiona Gordon, along with the leaders of Ogilvy’s, leading the people team including Gemma Davies, Gemma Wise and Gavin Sutton, to continue the momentum that has been achieved in the months since Gordon took over as CEO.

“I am a proud and self-confessed people geek. People are at the heart of our success and I’m passionate about ensuring that everyone feels seen, heard and included. Fostering a culture where everyone can thrive and feel at their best, professionally and personally is fundamental to making this happen. I’m delighted to work with leaders and a team that focuses on growth and development. I can't wait to keep building on that good work and keep leading the way for Ogilvy UK.” Elaine Grell

As Ogilvy UK thrives creatively and strategically, our mission is to help everyone grow and flourish in a way that works for them, from the moment you walk in the door, from apprentices to long tenure colleagues.” Fiona Gordon, CEO
