Grey announced that Pele Cortizo-Burgess, he of brooding headshot to your left, has moved back from London to take on the newly created EVP/chief strategy officer post at the agency’s New York office. Cortizo-Burgess most recently worked at ITV across the pond as director of creative strategy.

This is not the exec’s first stint in the Big Apple as he also served as EVP/director of planning and research at FCB New York. Perhaps most notably, Cortizo-Burgess handled lead planning duties at Goodby on the long-running “Got Milk” campaign. As he acclimates to his apparently difficult surroundings, Cortizo-Burgess will work closely with Grey CEO/chairman Jim Heekin, Grey NY CCO Tor Myhren and global director of strategic planning Suresh Nair.
