NEW YORK: MS&L has created a new global management team in the wake of Publicis Groupe?s senior-level restructuring.
"I wanted to organize us in a way that made us better at collaborating on new business and client development," said CEO Mark Hass. "All of the issues we face as an agency are global."
Jill Farwell, formerly president of North America, was named to the newly created position of COO, North America and president, Latin America. Larry Kamer assumes Farwell's previous role, after serving as SVP and director, crisis and issues management. Kamer will move to Chicago.
"This shows how important Chicago is to the growth of this company," Hass said.
Former NY MD Wendy Lund was named EVP for North American business and client development. Former Atlanta MD Jim Tsokanos was named EVP and the new MD of the New York office.
Hass ascended to the CEO role in April after predecessor Lou Capozzi was named head of a new umbrella group, Publicis Public Relations and Corporate Communications Group, which oversees all PR operations within the holding company.
