The World: New York - O&M names Hendra and Gray co-chief executives

Ogilvy & Mather has named the co-chief executives for its North American operations in a move intended to reflect its integrated offering.

Bill Gray, the president of O&M in New York, and Carla Hendra, the North American president of OgilvyOne, the group's DM specialist, will fill the roles.

The promotions are in recognition of the fact that O&M specialist units, which also include OgilvyInteractive and Ogilvy Public Relations, operate from the same building and often share resources and clients.

Gray and Hendra will report to Tro Piliguian, the O&M North American chairman. He said: "By creating this new leadership structure we are ensuring that we remain at the forefront of delivering programmes that build our clients through all points of consumer contact."
