Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide today announced a sprawling list of promotions, shifts and restructurings—including a large new production and technology operation called Ogilvy Delivery.

The changes were unveiled in an internal memo sent by Ogilvy & Mather Global CEO John Seifert to the agency’s many staffers. Acquired by Adweek, the memo details a networkwide restructuring and a number of leadership appointments across functions, clients and regions around the world.

The many changes together encapsulate Seifert’s most dramatic move since taking over for outgoing CEO Miles Young one year ago.
