Ogilvy names Kim Johnson Global CEO of Ogilvy Health

Ogilvy Health has announced that health industry leader Kim Johnson has been appointed Global Chief Executive Officer of Ogilvy Health. Widely respected for her marketing leadership in the health and wellness sector, Johnson has worked at the forefront of global health and science innovation on both the agency and client side throughout her career. 

Johnson will oversee all aspects of Ogilvy’s Health business spanning Brand Strategy, Advertising, Public Relations, Experience, Medical Education, HCP Promotion, Market Access, and Patient/Consumer Engagement and be responsible for further accelerating Ogilvy Health’s growth. She will assume the role on July 26.

Johnson brings nearly two decades of experience, most recently serving as executive VP of global clients for WPP, Ogilvy’s parent company. Earlier this year, she played a key role in launching the WPP Health Community of healthcare leaders from across the holding company.

“I am thrilled to have someone with Kim’s entrepreneurial spirit and impressive track record joining Ogilvy as we further accelerate the impact we have across the health continuum—from life sciences to healthy living,” said Ogilvy’s global CEO Andy Main.  “Under her leadership, I am confident that Ogilvy Health will continue to harness the power of creativity to help our clients solve for evolving patient and consumer needs we are seeing in a rapidly-changing marketplace.”

Johnson is filling a role vacated last month by Cronin, who left Ogilvy after 17 years to be Moderna’s chief brand officer. Last week, Ogilvy Health promoted Shannon Walsh to president of public relations for North America.
