New global CEO at Grey

Grey of New York has appointed Laura Maness to the position of global chief executive officer. She will begin work on Sept. 1. Maness was most recently CEO of Havas New York. At Havas, she also oversaw a number of specialist practices, including Annex88 and Havas CX. She was also US chief growth officer for Havas Worldwide North America and managing director of Havas Chicago. Before joining Havas, Maness was head of growth at FCB San Francisco. Grey is a division of AKQA Group, which is a subsidiary of WPP.

“As only the sixth CEO in 105 years, the opportunity to renew, galvanize and grow a legendary and celebrated agency like Grey, combined with the unmatched calibre of talent from across the globe, is incredibly meaningful,” said Maness. “I look forward to building on the strong foundation of Grey's storytelling prowess and famously effective work by fuelling a culture of creativity, innovation, and continuous impact.”
