NEW YORK – July 11, 2023 – Global communications consultancy Ketchum has announced that Vincent Dente has been brought onboard as Chief Creative Officer, U.S. Dente brings more than 25 years of experience delivering unparalleled creativity in marketing communications, driven by data and culture. In his new role, Dente will lead a diverse group of creative talent that work across all of Ketchum’s consultancies and capabilities.

My ultimate goal is to amplify the greatness that’s already there.”
