Cheryl leads Ogilvy’s Employee Experience practice, which includes the service pillars of employee activation, sales and service activation, and marketing activation, all focused on driving employee groups to embrace and deliver on a brand’s promise or business strategy. Cheryl’s more than 30 years in client and agency roles provides a depth of experience that translates to effective solutions for B2B and business-to-consumer (B2C) clients.
She loves listening to the challenges our clients face and connecting their brands to sales teams and the employee base. She actively works to leverage research, strategy and her experience as a certified change management practitioner to chart the right path forward and define what measurements to put into place to amplify their results.
Before joining Ogilvy (formerly Leopard) in 2006, she worked with McKinney in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, Carmichael Lynch in Minneapolis and McConnaughy Stein Schmidt Brown (now Havas Chicago) on accounts in technology, healthcare, financial services, and travel and tourism. She has helped brands such as Walgreens, CDW, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Minnesota Office of Tourism, CFA Institute, IBM, SAP, DuPont, GE Capital and Willis Towers Watson to deliver effective internal and external communications strategies, brand advertising, employee activation and sales enablement programs.
Cheryl is both a world traveler and homebody, a big thinker and a gal of simple pleasures. For her, happiness is a bicycle and lots of road, dinner with her husband, Shay, drizzling anything she can with Frantoio olive oil, and an adorable Icelandic sheepdog and a rescue pup snoozing at her feet.
