AUTOMATED CREATIVE APPOINTS SAATCHI & SAATCHI’S AMY WRIGHT AS CLIENT SERVICES DIRECTOR
Automated Creative, which provides artificial intelligence-led advertising for brands including Diageo, GSK, Unilever, and Bose, has appointed Amy Wright, previously at Saatchi & Saatchi, as client services director.
In the newly created role, Wright will be responsible for overseeing Automated Creative’s global client base, working with them to make the most of AI driven social and display technology. She will also be tasked with putting a new team in place for the company to support clients in the UK, Singapore and New York. She will report to Automated Creative’s founder, Tom Ollerton.
Wright was previously senior business strategist and communications lead at Saatchi & Saatchi in London, where she helped grow the agency and innovate its offering to clients. Her key successes include being a UK launch ambassador for Marcel.AI, as well as helping set up Publicis UK’s inclusion and ally employee engagement groups Embrace and Headline. She also contributed to client business and communications strategies, working with brands like EE, VRBO, Marie Curie, and Asda.
Automated Creative was established in 2017 and uses creative AI and consumer insight to optimise display and social ad performance and tell brands why their ads work. Founded by ex-We Are Social innovation director Ollerton, the company’s technology is now used globally by brands including Diageo, GSK, Reckitt Benckiser, Unilever, Fever Tree and Bose.
Commenting on her appointment, Wright says, “I’m a big tech nerd and I was hooked when the team at Automated Creative showed me the compelling insights uncovered using their AI. As marketers we know creativity only thrives by its effectiveness. To be effective means really understanding your audience, so it’s exciting to see AI used to make sense of messy human behaviour and the platform’s potential for challenging bias and the status quo. Automated Creative’s progressive, supportive, and ambitious culture really sealed the deal. I can’t wait to partner with such innovative clients.”
