Ritchie will report to Kaplan and serve on the senior leadership team established by Kaplan when she became CEO in May of 2013, consisting of Chief Creative Officer Lance Jensen, Managing Directors Leslee Kiley and Kerry Benson, Chief Media Officer Cindy Stockwell, Marketing Director Chris Wallrapp, Chief Human Resources Officer Ruthanne Russell and Chief Financial Officer Steve Andrews.

Ritchie is a highly respected industry leader in planning, creativity and effectiveness, with a collection of Cannes Lions, Effies, Pencils and Clios to his credit. Most recently he was Managing Partner for Publicis Mojo Group, Australia and New Zealand, responsible for managing client groups, leading strategy and driving growth for the agency. During his tenure, Mojo was one of the most creatively recognized and respected agencies in the world and Ritchie was instrumental in building Mojo’s reputation and influencing its award-winning work.

His extensive and diverse portfolio includes beer, energy drinks, consumer packaged goods, airlines, and mobile with such brands as Coke, Virgin Mobile, Nestle, Lion Nathan, Qantas, Cadbury and international food giant Goodman Fielder. Ritchie’s work for Coca-Cola won bronze at Cannes in 2011, while his strategic leadership of the Lion Nathan beer campaign took gold at Cannes in 2012.

“We took our time to conduct a thorough global search to fill the important role of Chief Strategy Officer,” said Kaplan. “In recruiting for this key position, it was critical that we identify someone whose values and vision match our own. We found that in Graham Ritchie, a top-notch creative strategist to lead our planning group who knows what great work looks like and who knows what it takes to make great work happen. He’s an inspired leader, a big thinker, and a true team player.”
