Three months after resigning from Grey New York to “pursue other opportunities,” Natalia Schultz has found a new gig at Saatchi & Saatchi as EVP, chief talent officer of the Americas. Schultz started this week and will be based in Saatchi’s New York office. Prior to assuming her new role, the exec spent 11 years at Grey, moving up from new business director to her most recent position as EVP, chief talent and development officer (Schultz was eventually replaced by Lisa Fabiano in April). Saatchi & Saatchi CEO and chair of the Americas Mary Baglivo sent a memo to staff regarding Schultz’s arrival. Read below and after the jump if you’d like.
“Dear Saatchi & Saatchi Everyone,
Please join me in giving a warm welcome to Natalia Schultz, our new Chief Talent Officer of the Americas.
She joins us from Grey Worldwide where she was responsible for strategic management of all HR operations; most recently as EVP, Chief Talent Officer.
Natalia brings a wealth of stellar business experience, restless passion, and an innate ability to forge deep personal connections.
She spent the first six years of her 11-year tenure with Grey focusing on New Business as Associate Director and Director of Prospecting. Earlier in her career, she held positions in Account Management, Business Development and Strategy at various agencies.
A true Renaissance woman, Natalia’s passion for the arts led her to managing several top international art galleries based in NYC.
Her belief in work/life balance is evident in her pursuit of yoga as a certified teacher. She continues a personal yoga practice in order to maintain hers.
Natalia’s role and responsibilities will follow in my footprint as CEO of the Americas and as such, she will be helping to cultivate our talent across New York, Canada, Latin America and Conill.
Natalia will be sitting on the 18th floor – please be sure to swing by and introduce yourself.
