Droga5 Appoints Bill Scott as CEO of London Office
Today, Droga5 announced the appointment of Bill Scott to the role of CEO of the London office.
Scott joins Droga5 from Grey London where he held the position of Group Managing Director. Scott joined Grey in 2013 after a 13-year stint at BBH, where he was Managing Partner and Client Services Director.
Commenting on Scott’s appointment, David Droga, Creative Chairman and founder of Droga5, said: “Bill is everything we were looking for in a CEO and more. A natural leader, blessed with the humility, class and inspiring ambitions that make him the perfect fit for this company.”
“The opportunity to work with David and the Droga5 team in New York to bring some of the same success to the UK operation was one too interesting to pass up. I have tremendous respect for all they have achieved in nine years in the U.S. and at just two years old, the UK office has a burgeoning list of clients and the passion to do brave, influential work. Couple that with the WME|IMG partnership and all that represents, and I feel like we can build an agency with a really unique point of view,” said Bill Scott on his appointment.
Sarah Thompson, Global CEO, Droga5 commented: “Bill and I have known each other since our time together at BBH. He has always displayed the kind of leadership and vision that is very much aligned with where Droga5 is and what we aspire to do in the future. Bill will be a key leader of both our London office and our global leadership team.”
