Ogilvy brings on Drew Warren as Government Vice President for IHG
Ogilvy has hired Drew Warren from Ketchum, where he has worked as a senior vice president and market leader in New York for the past ten years. Warren's newly created position at Ogilvy is as Executive Vice President, Global Public Relations, and as an influencer for the WPP team, the inter-agency unit of the Intercontinental Hotels Group.
Ogilvy works with Hill + Knowlto Strategies and BCW, Drew Warren's original place of work, before joining Ketchum. The company's New York office manages the upmarket service and hotel group hospitality account. In December 2019, WPP won the hospitality account with Jaime Prieto as WPP's global customer guide for Team Intercontinental Hotel Groups.
"We discussed Drew's responsibilities with internal executives, but we will also announce some exciting new hires in the coming weeks," said a Ketchum representative. "Drew has been an important member of the Ketchum community for many years, and we wish him all the best in this next chapter."
Former US PR and influencer leader Michele Anderson left Ogilvy last month to join Edelman in Chicago.
Ogilvy's PR sales in 2018 were $ 387.5 million / £ 297,435,312.50, an increase of 3% year over year, according to the PRWeek agency's annual report.
