Johnny Hornby, Founder, Global Chief Executive Officer & Chairman, The&Partnership
Johnny is founder, global CEO and Chairman of The&Partnership: an international, new-model agency network built for today’s complex industry landscape, backed by WPP.
Founded in 2013 and spanning all marketing disciplines, The&Partnership last year grew to become the UK’s largest and Europe’s fastest-growing independent agency network. It attributes this rapid expansion to the success of its in-sourced ‘&Model’ agencies, with multi-disciplined, on-site teams working alongside clients’ marketing departments in new, nimble ways, to a single bottom line.
These multi-disciplined ‘&Model’ agencies are operational and driving strong results for clients including News UK and TalkTalk in London, The Wall Street Journal in New York, TELUS in Canada, RBS in Edinburgh, as well as Toyota and Lexus across 17 markets in Europe.
Earlier this year, Johnny became Chair of Sentebale, a charity co-founded by The Duke of Sussex and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, to provide valuable psychosocial support, education and care for children affected by HIV/AIDS in Southern Africa.
