Accenture Interactive has appointed Nick Law as its global lead, design & creative tech, and Sarah Thompson–former global CEO of Droga5–as its global lead, communications & content.
In his new role, Law will be responsible for leading digital agency Accenture Interactive’s world-class service and experience design capabilities to help clients further modernize their approach and meet their customers’ ever-evolving needs. Law’s decades-long commitment to and obsession with progressive, future-facing design will energize Accenture Interactive’s mission to help its clients drive growth and relevance.
In her new role, Thompson will oversee Accenture Interactive’s global creative agency capabilities which include brand, digital engagement, content and media. She’ll specifically focus on unifying and growing Accenture Interactive’s creative agency capabilities around the world to bring the best thinking forward while connecting teams across our capabilities and offerings to architect, activate, and accelerate growth for clients.
The appointment of Law, who most recently worked in senior roles at Apple, Publicis Groupe and R/GA–and the elevation of Thompson–comes on the heels of Accenture Interactive’s appointment of Neil Heymann as its first global chief creative officer and Jatinder Singh as global lead of data and analytics.
“Two of the very first calls I made when I accepted my new role in September, were to Nick Law and Sarah Thompson respectively. Nick is someone I have admired for well over a decade. From R/GA to Apple, he is truly one of the most future-facing, design, technology and communications leaders. His work has inspired millions, grown revenue by the billions and set new benchmarks for how design and tech need one another to thrive,” said David Droga, CEO and creative chairman, Accenture Interactive. “And Sarah, well she has without a doubt been one of my most trusted and influential Droga5 partners, and certainly one of the smartest and most authentic people I have ever met. We are spoiled and excited to have such exceptional leaders join this already incredible leadership team.”
“I’m thrilled to take on a broader role within the leadership team of Accenture Interactive, especially at a time when businesses worldwide need a growth acceleration partner to help them drive their growth and ability to meet the ever-shifting needs of modern customers,” said Thompson. “I’m honored to offer my experience in leading Droga5, one of the world’s most respected creative agencies, and apply that to an impressive group of creative firepower found within Accenture Interactive’s creative agency brands.”
Law stated, “When David became the CEO of Accenture Interactive, it was a clear statement of the company’s oversized creative ambitions. I didn’t need much convincing to have a conversation with him; and once I did, to get excited by the company’s astonishing breadth and depth of capabilities. It’ll be a privilege to lead the discipline that I’ve always considered the foundation of the creative and tech industries–design. Creating great products, experiences and outcomes for clients starts with the craft and clarity of brilliant design. Design shapes how we interact with the world–and how we change it for the better. I’m looking forward to helping it drive Accenture Interactive’s ambition.”
