Toby Jenner Named Global CEO of Wavemaker
Today we are very pleased to announce Toby Jenner as our new Global CEO. He will transition from his current role over the summer and start officially at Wavemaker in September.
Kelly Clark, GroupM Worldwide CEO said, “Toby has been an outstanding contributor to our group’s growth for more than 15 years. In his 11 years at MediaCom, he’s been instrumental in the delivery of breakthrough client work, a winning streak on award circuits regionally and globally, and powerful business development performance. He is passionate about helping our clients win and is a fierce competitor for them, as well as for our business. He inspires our people to consistently exceed expectations and supports them in their own career development. He will be a strong leader with the very talented team at Wavemaker.”
Since our launch in 2018, Wavemaker has invested heavily in new capabilities in precision marketing, commerce, and content marketing, and our teams around the world have won 67% of pitches, with more than 300 new clients joining the agency’s roster during that time.
Prior to his current position, Toby held the MediaCom roles of Global Chief Business Development & Marketing Officer, Asia Pacific COO, and CEO of Australasia. He originally joined GroupM as Managing Director of MEC in the UK.
“I’m really looking forward to meeting my new colleagues and our clients at Wavemaker in the coming months,” said Toby. “I’m fortunate to join a business with very strong local markets, a great team, a great client portfolio, and a track record in delivering growth for brands. Like any business, I’m sure there are areas where we can be stronger. We’ll address those as a team and take the agency on to even greater success moving forward.”
