accommodate recent acquisitions and kick its Latin American expansion
plans up a gear.
Bob Pearson's title has been expanded from president of GCI North
America to president of GCI The Americas.
Jeff Hunt, who joined GCI as part of its recent acquisition of
Read-Poland, has become president of GCI Latin America. Hunt, who at one
time helped Burson-Marsteller grow its Latin American presence, reports
A new executive committee has been created under Pearson to take on some
of his US responsibilities. It comprises three divisions: US operations;
services and practices; and career development.
Ken Willis, GCI Atlanta president and head of US operations, has also
been named head of the firm's interactive practice, formed when the
Atlanta office merged with sister agency Elemental Interactive.
