Nigel Morris to leave Dentsu Aegis Network after 26 years

Dentsu Aegis Network today announces that Nigel Morris, Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer, is leaving the business at the end of March.

Morris joined the group, previously Aegis Plc, in 1992 and went on to hold senior positions before founding Isobar in 2003 where, as Ceo, he drove its expansion into one of the world’s leading digital agencies. Morris transformed Aegis’s strategic approach to international clients and has led many successful global pitches for the group.

He became Ceo of Aegis Media Americas in 2009 transforming the business into a market leader, before adding the leadership of the EMEA region in 2012. Since 2006 he has led the Group’s social impact (CSR) strategy with a focus on improving the way it operates and how it contributes both time and talent to make a positive impact in society. He was also a key player in the group’s global mergers and acquisitions strategy, leading many important acquisitions including the merger with Dentsu in 2013. Most recently, in 2017, Morris was named Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer.
