Omnicom’s Interbrand to Part with Global CEO Jez Frampton After 12 Years

Today, Omnicom-owned brand consultancy Interbrand confirmed that its global chief executive officer Jez Frampton will be leaving his role after 12 years and retiring.

In a press release that went live first thing this morning, the agency noted that Frampton will be succeeded by Charles Trevail, effective January 1 2018.

Trevail was the founder of London-based “innovation and co-creation consultancy” Promise Corporation, which was acquired by Omnicom in 2012 and merged into its “online insight community leader” Communispace to create C Space. He served as the CEO of that organization since January 2014.

The incoming CEO’s statement:

“It’s a great honor to lead Interbrand. It is a high-profile business with incredible people and clients. It is also a brand that is one of the most admired and influential in the marketing community. The world of brands and customer experience is the growth engine for the future. I look forward to getting started and working with the team to deliver for clients.”

In his own quote, Frampton called Trevail “the perfect person to take Interbrand to the next level,” describing him as “a passionate and proven leader who knows how to build relationships” and adding, “I feel fortunate to be leaving Interbrand in such capable hands.”

The reasons for the change in leadership were not directly addressed in the release.

It’s the latest in a series so far this year, including the hiring of DDB veteran Mark O’Brien as group chief financial and operations office and the subsequent departure of North American CEO Josh Feldmeth, who became a senior partner at Prophet as predicted in our post.

Here’s Frampton addressing a crowd in Hong Kong on “the future of brands” earlier this year.
