MWW recently created the deputy GM position in Seattle because the region is considered "an important growth market," MWW CEO Michael Kempner told PRWeek. Kempner also confirmed Rose's departure to join Emanate.
*CORRECTION: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that Matthew Rose was EVP at MWW for less than a year. In fact, he was promoted to EVP and GM in January 2007. The "corporate practice leader" title was less than a year old. We regret the error.
