NEW YORK, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The World Economic Forum has named Kim Slicklein, President of OgilvyEarth, the integrated global sustainability communications practice of advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather, a Young Global Leader for the Class of 2013.

Kim Slicklein is one of 199 honorees selected for this year's class.  She joins the more than 1,000 active YGL members and alumni who have a shared purpose of creating a better world.  A veteran sustainability-marketing executive, Ms. Slicklein is a social entrepreneur and innovator in developing sustainability solutions.

In 2011 Slicklein was named President of OgilvyEarth, which was recognized by independent research firm Verdantix as a leading integrated marketing agency offering "genuine expertise in sustainability communications." Under Slicklein's leadership, OgilvyEarth has attracted new clients, many of whom are recognized thought leaders in sustainability, including the United Nations Foundation, USGBC, SMaRT Certified, the Carbon Disclosure Project,and The Water Tank Project.

Prior to joining OgilvyEarth, Slicklein led sustainability and CSR initiatives at Droga5, including the launch of "WindMade" at the Davos World Economic Forum alongside the United Nations Global Compact, The World Wildlife Federation, The Global Wind Energy Council, PWC, Vestas, Lego, and Bloomberg. She spent six years building Enclave Rising, an international portfolio of companies rooted in environmental and social consciousness, each dedicated to developing and pioneering best practices in sustainability. Before launching Enclave Rising, Slicklein spent more than a decade leading new product innovation, brand strategy, project management, and big picture thinking for international blue chip companies.

Slicklein sits on the Board of Advisors for six organizations and was an Organizational Member of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) for the United Nations Foundation.

"We are extremely proud that Kim has been named a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader," said Miles Young, Worldwide Chairman and CEO of Ogilvy & Mather, "Her leadership of OgilvyEarth has propelled our sustainability expertise to the forefront in the industry and elevated sustainability issues to the corporate agenda of many of our clients, helping them develop programs that move beyond traditional green marketing.  I look forward to seeing the great things she will do for our agency as a Young Global Leader."
