Andy Main is joining WPP’s Ogilvy as global CEO next month.

He will take over from John Seifert, who’s served as global CEO for nearly five years. In April, Seifert said he plans to retire in 2021 after 41 years with the agency.

Main previously served as global head of Deloitte Digital, an eight-year-old creative consultancy. Deloitte Digital made a number of acquisitions under his leadership, most notably Heat, a San Francisco-based creative agency the company bought in 2016.

He also was named to Adweek’s Power List, which recognizes top players across advertising, marketing, media and tech, in 2017 and 2018.
