Ogilvy & Mather

Clare Donald joined Ogilvy London as Chief Production Officer in June this year.

Clare started her professional career in production companies, working for Directors such as Frank Budgen, Daniel Barber and Ivan Zacharias, winning numerous awards.

Leaving advertising briefly, she spent a couple of years working in feature and short film production, before transferring into agency production in 2002.

As deputy head of TV at JWT she became the 6th most awarded producer in the world, and from there she went on to Mother and then Havas, where she worked as Head of Operations managing film, digital and print production.

Still keen to explore new paths, she moved to Google in 2013 as Head of Operations at Google Creative Lab. Three years on, she was approached by Ogilvy and left to join their new management team.

Clare has judged many awards, including British Arrows, D&AD (Film Craft and then Branded Content) and APA.

Clare is a member of our Diversity Sub Committee.
