Ogilvy’s Lara Leventhal joins Spider PR as MD

Lara Leventhal, Ogilvy PR’s deputy MD, has left the WPP-owned agency to take on the newly-created role of MD at Spider PR.

Leventhal (pictured left) joins Spider after an 18-month stint at Ogilvy PR, where she was deputy MD. Before that, she Spider PRwas MD at Eulogy.

Spider PR has created the MD role as it reports over 30% year-on-year growth across its consumer and corporate sectors.

Spider PR CEO Sara Pearson (pictured right) said: “Lara arrives at a time of strong business performance at Spider. Over the last two years we’ve achieved 30% plus year-on-year growth across both consumer and corporate (sectors) and with Lara’s dynamism, and team leadership skills, we’re projecting similar growth in the year ahead.”

Leventhal added: “Spider is a gem of an agency with a fantastic team of 35 and incredible clients including Tyrrells Crisps, Maldon Salt, Kelloggs, Saga and FedEx. I’ve been incredibly impressed with the agency’s ability to deliver insight driven, multi-channel creative campaigns but what really makes them stand out is their single-minded focus on exceptional delivery through transparent accountability underpinned by a guarantee.”
