OgilvyOne London is delighted to announce the promotion of Clare Lawson to the role of joint client service director with responsibility for account management and new business.
Lawson, 30, described as one of the award-winning agency’s rising stars, is currently new business director at OgilvyOne, a role she will retain in addition to her new responsibilities. She will work with long-standing joint CSD Chris Slough. Clare will begin her new job immediately, reporting into OgilvyOne’s managing director Sam Williams-Thomas.
Sam commented: “At OgilvyOne London we like to reward talent and commitment and Clare’s latest promotion recognises 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 and joined 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.
