Gyro has appointed Philip Black senior vice president, Chicago and Denver. Reporting to gyro Chicago/Denver president Chris Hill, Black is tasked with overseeing the strategy practice for Chicago/Denver.
The appointment is part of a concerted effort by the agency to invest more heavily in its strategic services. The U.S. leadership has been steadily building out its strategy team with senior vice presidents/strategy already in place in Cincinnati (Judy Begehr) and New York (Georgia Bradley). And now Black in Denver/Chicago.
Most recently, Black served as B2B marketing agency Omobono’s U.S. head of strategy, working with clients including BP, JLL, Johnson & Johnson, Moody’s and Motorola Solutions.
Earlier in his career, he worked at B2B agency Avenue where he helped shape early-stage client strategy and growth development.
“Given the transformation agendas of client-side organizations, we are having to adapt and evolve our offerings to be even more valuable partners,” stated Christoph Becker, global CEO/CCO, gyro.
