Warren, SVP & Chief Diversity Officer, will be leaving the company at the end of October to take up a leadership position at Sony Music Group. A search for a new Chief Diversity Officer is currently being conducted.

"Under Tiffany's leadership, we've made notable gains in recruiting, retaining and developing a diverse workforce across the group and have accelerated our momentum in doing more to advance systemic equity. We thank Tiffany for her many contributions across Omnicom, especially the establishment of the OPEN Leadership Team, and we wish her well in her new role at Sony."

"Through the innovative work of the remarkable members of the OPEN Leadership Team, Omnicom is strongly positioned to continue leading and innovating in the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion.
