The Marketing Academy (TMA) has announced the appointment of Terry Savage as its first global chairman.
Savage will be responsible for guiding the academy through its expansion plans when he leaves his current role as the chairman of Cannes Lions in June.
In addition to steering TMA’s international development, Savage will convene a global council of high-profile industry figures to assist in raising awareness of the academy’s mission around the world.
Phil Rumbol, partner at MullenLowe, will continue to chair TMA’s board of trustees in the UK.
Sherilyn Shackell, founder and CEO of The Marketing Academy, said: “For the last eight years we have been uniting companies, CEOs and CMOs across the entire industry to share their wisdom and expertise with the next generation of leaders.
“With over 400 alumni of our programs, we remain totally committed to inspiring and developing exceptional talent.
“Terry brings a wealth of experience and knowledge at a global level and I am beyond excited that he has agreed to support us in the next step of our growth.”
Commenting on his appointment, Savage said: “I have long believed that for our industry to thrive we need to invest in our talent at the highest level.
“Through the quality of its mentors and the exceptional leadership development it delivers, The Marketing Academy has already earned an enviable reputation as a growth enabler for our talent and therefore our future.
“I’m looking forward to uniting the community around the world to collectively benefit from the academy’s work.”
