Thomas-Crampton-e1377078653568-700x420From January 2019 I start an exciting new role as Global Chair of Edelman’s digital practice, a global team of more than 700 digital experts.

Edelman was recently named the 2018 Digital PR Agency of the year by the Holmes Report.

For my previous role, I focused on growth and innovation as global consulting principal for Marketing Transformation at Ogilvy’s consulting arm, Ogilvy Consulting. There, I was leader of a team that helps companies from a wide range of industries undertake strategic change and digital transformation. Prior to that role, I was global managing director of [email protected], Ogilvy’s 1,500-person global social media practice.

Before joining Ogilvy, I worked as an entrepreneur-in-residence for an Asian media tycoon. In my first career, a foreign correspondent for The New York Times and the International Herald Tribune for nearly two decades, I was reporting on politics, economics, culture, business and technology and based out of Europe, Asia and North America.

A frequent public speaker, I have delivered keynote speeches at many events and universities, including the World Economic Forum in Davos, SXSW, Cannes Lions, DLD, Stanford University, Tokyo University and the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris.
