Patou Nuytemans is Memac Ogilvy CEO
One of the region’s most successful marketing pioneers, Edmond Moutran, founder and chairman of Memac Ogilvy, will step down as CEO, a role he has held since Memac’s inception in 1984.
Ogilvy’s EMEA Chief Digital Officer and 22-year company veteran, Patou Nuytemans (pictured), will succeed Moutran, effective September 17, while he shifts his full focus to the Executive Chairman responsibilities.
Nuytemans’s incredible experience in the modern marketing world has seen her represent Ogilvy in five markets across multiple continents, including South Africa, France, Belgium, and the US and UK. She has served in her current role as the Chief Digital Officer for EMEA for 14 years, and has been one of the company’s most influential figures in transforming Ogilvy from a traditional agency to a digital age group.
Nuytemans will continue her role as EMEA’s Chief Digital Officer, creating an even stronger relationship between Memac Ogilvy and the regional leadership team.
Edmond Moutran will maintain his position as Executive Chairman of Memac Ogilvy, having served dual responsibilities since he founded Memac in Bahrain in 1984. After building a one-client, one-office company into the region’s most awarded agency, covering 14 countries, he sold a majority share to Ogilvy in 2013. Nuytemans will assume her new role on September 17, 2017.
