NEW YORK: Another Burson-Marsteller senior executive has followed
Tom Bell over to parent Young & Rubicam.
Don Cogman, currently president/COO of B-M Worldwide, next month will
become EVP of corporate affairs at Y&R, a new position.
The job change comes on the heels of Graham Phillips’ move to become
chairman/CEO of Y&R Advertising (PRWeek, August 16). Y&R’s board of
directors recently named Bell president and COO, and he will assume the
role of CEO next year when Peter Georgescu becomes chairman
Cogman’s departure is not surprising, as he is a close confidant of
Bell’s and has a background in corporate and public affairs. Corporate
practice MD Peter Himler said a replacement will be named shortly.
Cogman was appointed president when Chris Komisarjevsky assumed the CEO
role last October.
