Bennett Out at Ogilvy Chicago

A phone call to the agency has confirmed that Graceann Bennett, who has spent the last six-plus years as managing partner, director of strategic planning at Ogilvy Chicago, is no longer with the agency. No official comment from the O&M camp as of yet, but we’re hearing from sources that Bennett’s departure was rather “abrupt.”

Prior to Ogilvy, Bennett led brand planning efforts in the early aughts at Arnold Worldwide before joining up with Leo Burnett in 2004 to serve as EVP/director of brand planning. During her career, Bennett has also worked in the planning departments at the likes of Mullen and TBWA\Chiat\Day. While at Ogilvy, the exec oversaw accounts including Kimberly-Clark and Oscar Mayer and served on the agency’s Global Planning Council.
