Chris Hirst

CEO at GREY London
United Kingdom


Chris is a graduate of Oxford and Harvard Business School and began his advertising career at SP Lintas. Hired as a Planner, he quickly switched to Acct Management, then to BBH where he worked on a range of domestic and global brands including TAG Heuer, Audi and Unilever. In 1999 he joined Fallon where he helped to win the award winning Skoda account and a place on the BBC roster. As Client Services Director, he built one of the strongest Account Management Departments in London. As Managing Director of Grey London, Chris and the Management Team have run one of the industry?s most successful change management programmes, taking Grey from a safe-but-dull London outpost, to one of the most dynamic agencies in London. In 2008 on the back of a very strong new business performance, and an exciting and diverse creative output, Grey London was made one of Marketing Magazine?s Agencies of the year. Chris is married with two small boys.
