The Group Board
Chairman of OgilvyOne UK & CEO of OgilvyOne EAME
Annette has worked at OgilvyOne London for the past 10 years, enjoying a rapid rise through the ranks. She began her Ogilvy life with a four year stint running the Amex 360 EMEA business. In 2005 she was promoted to Client Service Director, with primary responsibility for new business. Among her achievements were helping to bring into the OgilvyOne fold Mothercare, HBOS and First Great Western – in the space of just one year.
Shortly after this she ran the agency’s burgeoning digital arm, Ogilvy Interactive, and her record in new business and client services were rewarded in November 2006 with a promotion to Deputy MD. In 2007 she led the team which won that year’s biggest DM pitch, for British Gas, following it up not long after with British Airways’ global DM and loyalty business. She was appointed Managing Director at the beginning of 2008, and was promoted again just nine months later – this time to the position of CEO.
Prior to her arrival at Ogilvy, King worked for eight years at Wunderman, mostly in New York. She lives in West London with her husband and two young children.
