NEW YORK: Jan Sneed, who has been SVP of Corporate Affairs for Grey Global Group for the past four years, has joined Foote Cone & Belding Worldwide as an EVP and director of corporate communications.
Sneed is now the highest-ranking communications officer at FCB, the global ad agency. She will lead all media relations and corporate positioning for the agency and report directly to chairman and CEO Brendan Ryan. Sneed's predecessor at FCB, Bill Haney, recently retired.
"FCB is a great, tried and true brand," Sneed said, "and my role will be to help position the brand in the marketplace."
Sneed has been working in communications roles at ad agencies since 1981. Her stint at FCB will be her 14th position in the industry, she said.
Grey has not yet named a replacement for Sneed.
