Jenny Bullis becomes first CEO of EMEA
21 July 2016
We're thrilled to welcome Jenny Bullis, our first CEO for EMEA, to our global family. Jenny comes to us from Omnicom, where she led the charge as Annalect's managing director for UK and EMEA.
With her vast experience in leading marketing, media and data teams, Jenny will lead our EMEA practice with a special focus on growing our existing and new client business across the region.
“I am so excited to be joining Essence,” said Jenny. “The founding principle of the agency: to make advertising more valuable to the world, for brands and consumers; really resonates with me, particularly as we face a digitised but over-cluttered media landscape, where quality and integrity are questioned. Essence are at the forefront of change in media and I am delighted to be joining a highly talented team to grow the EMEA business, and help Essence with its plans for global expansion.”
Christian Juhl, our global CEO, whom Jenny will be reporting into, added: “Now is the right time to focus on the next stage of growth in the region. There is no better person than Jenny to lead that growth. Jenny has experience leading both brands and agencies, she understands what it takes for clients to be successful in the digital age and we’re excited having her lead Essence’s EMEA team.”
“Jenny will be an outstanding leader for Essence in Europe,” said GroupM Chief Digital Officer Rob Norman. “She has been a client of GroupM during her time at BT and we admired her determination, her fact-based approach to business and her creativity. She joins a great team and she will only make them better.”
