Bamford also worked on R/GA’s “Black Beauty is Beauty” campaign for Sephora that helped Black beauty products break through search results on Google and YouTube.
“Ellie has built a media practice at R/GA that unlocked some of our most iconic work and some of our best business relationships,” Tom Morton, global chief strategy officer at R/GA, said in a statement.
“Her impact will be felt for years to come,” said Sean Lyons, global CEO of R/GA.
Bamford is the latest R/GA executive to depart the agency. Former Chief Marketing Officer Ashish Prashar left earlier this month after two years with the shop. Nichelle Sanders, who served as a managing director for R/GA’s New York office, left to become Mojo Supermarket’s managing director earlier this month.
