Elizabeth Harrison


Elizabeth Harrison launched H&S 24 years ago. During her tenure as CEO, she has worked with iconic brands across multiple categories, and under her leadership the agency has seen robust growth with large global clients such as Bacardi, Booking.com, Fairmont, and OMEGA, as well as affecting positive cultural change, hiring diverse talent, increasing profit growth and maintaining 88% client retention.

Since its launch, H&S has transformed into a full-service global, integrated marketing communications practice that puts diversity front and center. H&S is 50% diverse, with a 70% diverse senior leadership team. Under Elizabeth’s stewardship, H&S has grown by double digits over the past four years. In 2020, Elizabeth stepped up as a true “Changemaker”, buying back the agency from Omnicom, negotiating the agency’s status as a preferred partner, maintaining notable relationships, and sharing clients with Ketchum and BBDO. Elizabeth is also a co-author of several successful books and is frequently invited to share her luxury brand, leadership and entrepreneurship expertise at high-profile conferences and summits. A native New Yorker, Elizabeth lives in Manhattan and is married with two daughters.
