CEO, Grey New York
Debby has been a part of Grey’s success for over 20 years helping to build and shape the agency with her leadership on a number of accounts. She was recognized for these contributions and became the first ever CEO of Grey New York in December, 2016.
Joining Grey New York in 1989 after graduation from Harvard, Debby embraced her passion for the beauty business, working on CoverGirl. After a successful stint running Clairol at JWT, she came home to Grey to lead the global reinvention of Pantene in 1999.
Over the years, Debby has helped build Grey into the number one beauty agency in the world with iconic juggernaut brands such as Pantene, Clairol, CoverGirl and an array of fragrances. She led the team that won the global Gillette account in 2013 and later added Venus, Braun and the Art of Shaving business in 2014.
From Ellen DeGeneres for CoverGirl to transgender model Tracey Norman for Clairol to our Gillette Ask Dad, Grey’s advertising has put these mega-brands front and center in pop culture conversation, driven their growth and been honored at Cannes.
