Cheil UK poaches Grey’s CMO Cat Davis for European chief growth officer role

Thursday May 28, 2015 at 7:04pm
Cheil UK has announced the appointment of Catherine Davis as its new Chief Growth Officer for UK and Europe. Davis joins Cheil UK from Grey London, where she was Chief Marketing Officer. In her time at Grey London, Davis became known as the agency’s most successful new business and marketing director, winning 64 accounts since joining in 2009. Prior to Grey, Davis was Marketing and PR Director at CHINA NOW. Her CV also includes time at RKCR/Y&R, Burkitt DDB, Leo Burnett and TBWA. The Cheil network has made a number of senior hires recently, including the appointment of its President Global Chief Growth Officer Lotta Malm-Hallqvist, who joined in January with a remit to strengthen the agency’s world-wide position in the fast-changing global marketplace. In her new role, Davis will be responsible for driving business growth across Europe with a specific focus on the UK market. She will report directly into Cheil UK’s COO Matt Pye. Pye says: “Cat’s new business record at Grey speaks for itself. She’s a phenomenal appointment, and follows hot on the heels of Lotta Malm-Hallqvist as global growth officer. This underlines Cheil’s ambition to secure rapid growth with high-quality clients. It’s a really exciting time to be part of the Cheil network.”
