As chief integration officer, Myron King leads organizational design and cultural integration strategy for North American clients. He reports to Global Chief Experience Officer Jeff Geheb.
In this role, King oversees the strategic integration of core agency capabilities for new and existing clients across North America. This includes focusing on BIPOC corporate integration; consulting on marketplace diversity; and developing inclusive policies, practices, and protocols for business evolution.
In addition, Myron serves as a strategic partner for the agency’s cross-departmental Transformation Initiative. VMLY&R’s Transformation Initiative aims to implement integration efforts that combat systemic racism across all areas of the business, both client-facing and internal. The initiative also supports ongoing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strategies that drive measurable progress and substantive and lasting change for BIPOC employees and VMLY&R employees at large.
King is a veteran of the VMLY&R network, having spent nearly 15 years with the agency. He served most recently as managing director of VMLY&R’s advisory practice, where he led digital transformation efforts. Since joining the agency in 2006, King has played a vital role in helping clients navigate disruption by crafting connected and memorable brand and customer experiences for clients like Bayer, Coca-Cola, ConocoPhillips, Dell, Electrolux, Ford Motor Company, Honeywell, Kellogg, SAP, Sherwin-Williams, and Sprint.
"VMLY&R is like family to me,” King said. “Over the years I've watched us grow from 400 employees to over 7,000. We've consistently adapted and evolved to deliver some of the top creative, digital, and consumer-centric marketing solutions in the world. In the process, we've sustained a culture of togetherness and excellence. I’m excited to amplify our organizational design and cultural integration efforts with clients to help make VMLY&R the most diverse, inclusive, and creative agency in the world.”
King is highly active in the development of VMLY&R’s culture and employee experience. He is a founding member of the VMLY&R Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee; a Mentor Captain; and an executive sponsor for BIPOC employee resource groups. He earned dual bachelor’s degrees in political science and communication studies from the University of Missouri before completing a master's degree in public policy analysis from the University of Rochester.
In his spare time, King volunteers with numerous nonprofits across the U.S. He is a proud member of 100 Roses and AAF-KC. He enjoys traveling with his wife and three adult children and sharpening his musical chops on the drums.
