Born Ugly appoints new non-exec Chair

Simon Bailey is the Chairman of the creative change agency

Creative change agency Born Ugly has appointed Simon Bailey as its new non-executive Chair. Bringing with him a wealth of experience, Simon’s strategic appointment will be central to Born Ugly’s ambitious growth plans to expand its capabilities in creative problem-solving and delivering disruptive ideas, strategies and creative globally.

As a non-exec chair, Simon will continue in his full-time role as Senior Partner at Kantar Consulting, utilising his experience to support and advise Born Ugly on its next phase of development. 

Formerly holding positions including European CEO of Interbrand and UK CEO of WPP’s Brand Union, Simon joins with over 20 years of brand and business consulting experience. He has worked with an impressive roster of clients, including Barclaycard, BBC, Nissan Europe, Shell, SAB Miller, Unite and Vodafone.

Powerful ideas are born ugly, so it’s great to be part of a business that’s using creativity to provoke clients, helping them redefine what they do and how they do it, and achieving extraordinary impact. I’m looking forward to working with Sarah and the Born Ugly team as we grow and develop this exciting business.
