Former Publicis Groupe Executive, John Farrell, has been appointed as non-executive Chairman of creative and media advertising agency, AML Group.

Farrell who was president and CEO of Publicis Groupe’s specialised agencies and marketing services arm, joins at a pivotal time of growth for the agency that has built a global reputation based on an ethos of ‘simple ideas for complicated businesses’.

“John brings an abundance of experience and a unique combination of edge with empathy” said Ian Henderson, CEO of AML Group. “To move the business to the next level we need to be challenged and John is the perfect person to do just that”.

AML Group said it takes an independent approach to global campaigns for clients in complex, regulated, intermediated markets such as finance, professional services, security, technology and government. 

Its ability to deliver solutions for tangled markets and tough-to-reach audiences has seen them work for some of the world’s leading organisations including the biggest banks in Japan, Germany and Switzerland and the UK’s leading global investment firm.

“AML Group is a business with fantastic potential” said John Farrell “And its positioning of ‘simple ideas for complicated businesses’ is a powerful differentiator that it is able to deliver against for its clients”.

AML Group recently announced a number of new business wins including: Investec, Mitie and Aberdeen Standard.
