Global ad agency Leo Burnett Worldwide has appointed Liz Taylor to the role of chief creative officer.
She officially assumes the position on July 8.
Taylor joins the Chicago-based Publicis unit from FCB Chicago, where she served as CCO and led the IPG agency’s Windy City office. Prior to that, she was global executive creative director at Ogilvy & Mather. Earlier in her career, Taylor held leadership positions at JWT, Element79 and Tribal DDB.
In light of the position, Taylor now assumes the hybrid role of North American creative lead of Publicis Groupe’s creative hub, Publicis Communications.
