Wolff Olins Loses One CEO to Apple, Gains Another

IjeUK brand consultancy Wolff Olins just lost its CEO–and gained another in short order.

Last Friday brought news that global CEO Karl Heiselman would leave the agency after 14 years for an as-yet-undisclosed role atop Apple’s marketing communications team. Today Olins officially “revealed” his successor–London managing director Ije Nwokorie.

Nwokorie has served in that role for the past four years; he says his goal as agency leader will be to “help clients find creative ways to build deeper, richer human experiences that have both social and commercial impact.”

Heiselman approves, writing: “I can’t imagine a better person on the planet than Ije to take on the role of CEO.”
