Cat Davis from Grey London is Cheil Worldwide’s newest senior hire

SOUTH KOREA – Cheil Worldwide announces the addition of Catherine Davis as its new chief growth officer for UK and Europe to the network’s raft of senior hires.

Before moving to Cheil, Davis was the chief marketing officer at Grey London. She won an incredible number of 64 accounts since he joined the agency in 2009, making a name for herself as Grey London’s most successful new business and marketing director.

“Cat’s new business record at Grey speaks for itself. She’s a phenomenal appointment, and follows hot on the heels of Lotta Malm-Hallqvist as global rowth officer. This underlines Cheil’s ambition to secure rapid growth with high-quality clients. It’s a really exciting time to be part of the Cheil network,” said Matt Pye, Cheil UK COO.


Prior to Grey, Davis was the marketing and PR director at CHINA NOW. She also had stints at RKCR/Y&R, Burkitt DDB, Leo Burnett and TBWA.

Earlier in January, another senior, Lotta Malm-Hallqvist joined Cheil as global chief growth officer, with a remit to strengthen the agency’s worldwide position in the fast-changing global marketplace.

In her new role, Davis will be responsible for driving business growth across Europe with a specific focus on the UK market. She will report directly to Cheil UK’s COO Matt Pye. She will be based in London.

“The opportunity to join Cheil – an agency with the ambition and passion to become a force to be reckoned with locally, regionally and globally, is one that was too great to resist. It’s an incredibly exciting agency to be at right now,” said Davis.

“I’ve had an incredible six years at Grey. It’s been fantastic being a senior part of their turnaround story and I’m now relishing a new challenge.”
