LONDON: Cohn %26 Wolfe has made further changes to its top management structure globally, with the appointment of former UK managing director Martin Ellis to president of all operations in Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia-Pacific.
The move coincides with global CEO Steve Aiello's step up to the position of chairman last week, making New York CEO Donna Imperato the new chief (PRWeek, May 27).
Ellis' promotion comes five months after his previous one, which saw him take the post of executive VP and international managing director in February.
At the time, Ellis announced that he was hoping to expand C&W's international offerings, both in terms of practice capabilities and geographical presence.
He said the Asia-Pacific region - in particular China - and the Middle East were areas the agency was focusing on for expansion.
