Ned Russell is the Managing Director of Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness, an advertising agency that represents three of the top five selling Rx brands and is one of the most awarded agencies in the world. Ned has helped grow iconic brands including Johnson & Johnson, Coke, Hershey’s and McDonald’s. He also has significant international experience, having lived in Tokyo with Asia Pacific responsibilities as well as doing global work while based in New York. In 2008 he became a client, heading marketing for the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, before returning a year later to run Wellness. Saatchi Wellness is a very different kind of agency: over half of its revenue is pure play digital, with the remainder split between RM and traditional advertising. Wellness has consistently won top honors in awards shows for its digital, direct mail and advertising, including the first-ever Healthcare Grand Clio.
