About me

Jonathan, who joined Grey in 2015, has been charged with evolving our Strategy Group, one that is built for tomorrow and delivers breakthrough innovation. He drives the development and implementation of a single strategic POV and integrated creative thinking that leads to big platform ideas true to our “Famously Effective” mission.

It’s been said that the future of advertising lies at the intersection of creativity, data, media, and technology. Jonathan brings a track record of success in all of these areas as well as traditional brand planning. He joined Grey from Huge, the Brooklyn-based worldwide digital agency, where he served as Global Managing Director, Planning and Strategy for the past three years and oversaw an integrated strategic offering comprising over 100 individuals globally.

Jonathan has held senior leadership roles in strategic and account planning at both digital and traditional shops including Rosetta, the digital agency, where he developed and introduced a new planning philosophy for the “connected world” and TBWA/Chiat/Day New York where, among other things, he developed the global brand strategy for Michelin and led the Vonage account. He has forged successful integrated strategy models across disciplines and planning and creative collaboration across borders.
