NEW YORK: The Abernathy MacGregor Group has promoted Adam Miller to president, succeeding firm co-founder James MacGregor.
MacGregor will assume the role of vce chairman and will spend more time focusing on client work, the agency said.
In a statement, MacGregor said he will "devote more of [my] working time to the understanding of issues and situations that our clients confront, and the ideas and strategies that we develop to help them."
Miller will retain his role as COO of the firm, which he has held since 2001. Both Miller and MacGregor will be reporting to the CEO James Abernathy.
The agency may hire a new COO in the future, but has no immediate plans to do so, Miller said.
In his new role as president, Miller will be responsible for all day-to-day operations of the firm, including both the New York and the Los Angeles offices.
Miller, now 35, joined Abernathy in 1994, and began heading its entertainment and media practice five years later. He will continue to head that practice in his new position.
He said that the firm experienced "meaningful growth" in 2005.
Abernathy is owned by Havas.
