AMV BBDO appoints Laura Rogers as new ECD
Laura Rogers will strengthen the creative leadership spearheaded by CCOs Nicholas Hulley and Nadja Lossgott.
With 20 years of experience, Laura Rogers' work has been recognised by all the major awards shows, with over twenty Cannes Lions, an array of pencils from both the One Show and the D&AD and an Emmy nomination. Now, she joins the exceptional talent of AMV’s creative department and creative leadership.
She's started her career in Toronto and left Canada for London after eight years, enticed by the chance to work on Dove at Ogilvy. She next took up a Creative Director role at CHI&Partners (now The&Partnership), then moved to adam&eveDDB, where she was Global Creative Director overseeing the Unilever business. Most recently, Rogers was Managing Creative Director at Pablo.
Her time in the industry has been marked by some incredible moments, like watching #WeThe15, her campaign for the International Paralympic Committee being presented to the United Nations, creating 80 ads in one go for Argos, and teaching people with breathing difficulties to sing in her Grand Prix winning campaign for Philips, Breathless Choir.
She has demonstrated her passion for fostering inclusivity and promoting women through the initiative SheTakesOver, which raises the profiles of female directors, photographers, illustrators, and composers to address the gender imbalance in the creative industries. Now in its fifth year, the initiative has made significant strides towards a more diverse and equitable creative landscape. Rogers' commitment to nurturing creativity extends beyond her work as she actively participates in industry discussions and contributes to award shows as a jury member.
AMV BBDO CCOs Nicholas Hulley and Nadja Lossgott say, "It brings immense joy to welcome Laura into our extraordinary team. Her award-winning creativity, passion and kindness perfectly align with the AMV philosophy as we keep delivering creativity that enables business, brands, and causes to have the most meaningful impact".
On joining AMV BBDO, Laura Rogers says, "The people at AMV are the best of the best. I'm delighted to be joining Nick, Nadja, Sam, Martin, and everyone there to write the agency's next great chapter. AMV is a place where you don't just make great work, you get to define what great work means. And with the most talented people in the world around me, I believe we'll do just that".
Laura Rogers joins AMV BBDO this month.
