Ron Harrison

Senior Partner
The agency search process can be a difficult one, and clients need to feel confident that they will make the right choice. Luckily they have Senior Partner Ron Harrison in their corner. Ron helps clients focus on what is critical and empowers them to hire an agency partner with the assets needed for long-term success. After spending 34 years at full service agencies and media specialist firms, Ron claims SRI was the only company he could work for. He felt SRI was unmatched in its skills and integrity among both clients and agencies. And our clients reach out to Ron for the very same reasons. Ron has worked for various Omnicom companies since 1984, beginning his career as the Media Director of BBDO SF, ultimately becoming BBDO’s North American Director of Media Technology. In 1998 Ron became one of the original members of the OMD Worldwide management team, where as Head of Global Business Development he helped craft the OMD brand and establish it as a preeminent global network. He also helped create the OMD web platform, managed OMD Academy and all global OMD management meetings. He then joined OMD sister agency PHD in 2004, managing domestic and international client assignments from a New York base. Ron’s single minded objective is to provide clients with a positive and successful search experience. He consistently presents clients with strong contenders and strives to ensure that each agency offers its best work. This makes client decisions challenging but also rewarding, and ensures that clients select an agency that will become a true long-term partner. After a four year sojourn living in downtown Miami, Ron and his wife recently relocated back to New York City. While they’ll miss the Sunshine State, especially during the winter months, the allure of living in the Big Apple was too much for them. Ron enjoys traveling, dining out, Manhattan culture and exploring everything New York City has to offer. He is an active alumnus of Michigan State University, loves single malt scotch and rooting on his beloved Spartan sports teams. Go State!
