EVP, Chief of Staff
Named EVP, chief of staff in September 2013, Elyssa Phillips is a driving force in ensuring that FCB’s global leadership team operates effectively and seamlessly. Phillips began her advertising career at Ogilvy & Mather in account management. She joined FCB in 1993 and has worked tirelessly – most recently as EVP, worldwide creative manager – to recruit top talent and elevate the network’s creative reputation. Her efforts are working. Under Phillips’ watch, the agency has doubled its Cannes Lions trophy count in the past three years. In 2013 alone, FCB won 36 Lions, including a Cyber Grand Prix for Mondelez.
