On Purpose brings in ex-Omnicom PR President David Gallagher as Advisor

On Purpose has roped in David Gallagher to its team in an advisory capacity. The former President of Omnicom PR, Chairman of the PRCA UK and former President of ICCO will join the agency as a Strategic Advisor. This move is with the aim to support On Purpose’s business growth and help scale into a mid-size agency in the next few years. It will work with Gallagher’s firm DG Advisory.

Gallagher said, “On Purpose offers a glimpse of what purpose-driven communications and consultancies can achieve when we put the power of communications towards achieving social change. Its focus on building an equitable workplace, with diversity, inclusion, and gender equity at its core makes it both endearing and enduring. I’m delighted to have this opportunity to help the team continue to evolve into a differentiated consultancy.”

Girish Balachandran, Managing Partner and Founder, On Purpose, said, “I am delighted with the opportunity to work with David again. His expertise in global markets and building leadership teams will be invaluable to us and comes to us at a critical time as we consider our next phase of growth. David’s outlook on the PR industry’s potential as a force for good and his experience with building organisations based on purpose, values and ethics, aligns perfectly with what we’re trying to do at On Purpose.”
