Chief Innovation Officer
OMD is perpetually evolving to anticipate the marketplace and client needs. Under Jonathan’s leadership, OMD created and launched Ignition Factory in 2008, the most cutting edge media creativity unit in the business. Jonathan also designed the strategy and infrastructure to create Airwave, OMD’s advanced mobile marketing consultancy. Additionally, OMD’s lauded video game marketing group Zero Code falls under Jonathan’s purview.
The work produced from OMD’s specialty units is recognized industry wide and delivers solutions to clients that truly break through the clutter.

Our work has been recognized throughout the industry for setting not only standards in creative uses of media but in effectiveness as well.
