Omnicom has appointed Torrey La Grange to the newly created position of chief talent officer of its global client leaders group. The GCL group is comprised of client leaders responsible for overseeing Omnicom’s top global accounts.
According to the company La Grange will work closely with each of the GCL leaders to “further shape and support their role” by expanding development programs, talent sharing platforms, recruiting strategies and more.
Peter Sherman, executive vice president of Omnicom stated, “Having lived on the front lines of account leadership and talent recruitment, Torrey has gained a deep understanding of both areas in the context of creative cultures. She embodies Omnicom’s commitment to talent at every level and will be applying that commitment directly to the client leaders group.”
La Grange was most recently head of account management and global business director at BBH New York where she managed global teams in New York, India, Singapore, and South Africa, with oversight of client relationships, strategic insight, and creative projects. She joined BBH after three years as a recruiter at Tangerine where she developed relationships with talent on both the agency and client side of the business.
Earlier La Grange served as account director at JWT and business director at Saatchi & Saatchi London.
