Publicis Media UK promotes Jane Holding to Chief Client Officer role


Publicis Media UK has appointed Jane Holding as Chief Client Officer in a newly created role. Holding is promoted from her current role as Client Managing Director on the Samsung media account and will continue to work closely with the team in her new role.

In this new role, Holding will report into Publicis Media UK CEO, Niel Bornman, and will be dedicated to generating value and growth for clients through the strategic use of Publicis Media’s comprehensive suite of solutions and expertise. Collaborating closely with senior leaders from across its agency brands (Zenith, Starcom, and Spark Foundry), Holding will leverage her in-depth knowledge of the media landscape to identify new opportunities tailored to clients’ evolving needs.

Niel Bornman, Chief Executive at Publicis Media UK, said: “With the current pace of change in our industry, it’s imperative that we stay ahead of our clients’ ever-evolving needs. Jane boasts a wealth of experience across multiple sectors, where she’s consistently delivered growth for our clients through integrating our services and capabilities delivered through a client centric culture. In the few months since I joined Publicis Media, I’ve been blown away with Jane’s approach and I can’t wait to introduce her brilliance and expertise across our entire portfolio.”

Holding has overseen Publicis Groupe’s Samsung Constellation team in the UK for more than five years as Managing Director, adding the European Operations to her remit more recently. Under her leadership, the Constellation team has pitched and won several new scopes over the past few years, including CRM, Analytics and Commerce. As a Power of One offering, the Constellation team draws on talent from across Publicis Groupe UK agencies.

Jane Holding, Chief Client Officer at Publicis Media UK, said: “I have always loved building powerful reciprocal partnerships with our clients. Partnerships built on trust, empathy, humour and a clear shared ambition. The momentum we have across Publicis right now is tangible and energising. I am absolutely thrilled to be joining Niel’s leadership team at such as momentous time.”

Holding has almost 25 years’ experience within the industry, and over two decades with Publicis Media. She has successfully led a broad spectrum of blue-chip clients across a range of sectors including Entertainment, Luxury, Automotive, Telecommunications, FMCG and Travel.
