Amber Guild has been leading transformation and growth in the Advertising, Media and Publishing industries for over 20 years.
She most recently worked for The New York Times, where she served as President of T Brand and NYT Events, the marketing services and events divisions. There, Amber led the re-imagination of how the advertising division should work in order to better serve both their clients and their people - the outcome leading to more meaningful and compelling brand experiences for their audiences. Her leadership of the NYT Events division enabled The Times’ editorial teams to be in front of, and engage with their audiences when it mattered most. In 2020, she was tapped to lead another transformation - this time for the entire company. Amber co-led the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strategy which launched the largest cultural transformation the Times has seen in its 169 year old history.
Prior to The Times, Amber spent over two decades working in Advertising, Innovation and Branding firms such as Ogilvy & Mather, Saatchi & Saatchi, T3 and COLLINS.
Amber was named one of Ad Age's 2016 "Women to Watch"; sits on the boards and advisory councils of SATURDAY MORNING, 3% Movement, VCU Brandcenter, Fishbowl Diversity Council, Ad Council Diverse Leaders Group, and, is a founding member of CHIEF.
Amber is currently “on hiatus” having decided to take time off to recharge, recover from cancer treatment, and spend time with her two kids, husband, and their loving dog, Maggie.
