CEO Omnicom Media Group NA
Onward and upward. For Page Thompson, this is more a directive than a mantra. Page’s insight that “the one constant in media today is that everything is changing” furthers his demand for excellence and drives results for OMD's clients.
In 2002, as CEO North America, Page merged the media departments of DDB, BBDO and TBWA, creating OMD, the largest media operation in North America. Page is one of the Founding Fathers of the well-known Checkmate process, the initial blueprint for Insights-Ideas-Results and the foundation of our current proprietary planning process, Vision.
Under Page’s leadership, Omnicom Media Group North America has won more than $8 billion in new business since 2005. A powerful advocate for media’s role in advertising, Page has led both the Media Directors Council and the 4A’s Media Policy Committee and serves on the boards of Needham’s New York office and DDB Worldwide. Honored as Media Director of the Year and as a Media Maven by Ad Age, Page drives results in the community as well by serving on the board of Concern Worldwide (U.S.). Page also led the effort, with the Ad Club of New York, to raise more than $2 million for New York public schools.
