NEW YORK: Amanda Glasgow is returning to MSLGroup as North American consumer practice director. She previously worked at MSL for nine years before joining Edelman in May.
Glasgow began work at MSL on Monday. She succeeded Michael Sullivan, who passed away in February.
During her prior stint at the agency, Glasgow served as MSL New York's personal care practice director before moving to Edelman this spring to work as EVP and global client relationship manager in San Francisco. She will stay on the West Coast, working from Schwartz MSL's San Francisco office.
Glasgow will also take on the position of global client engagement director for client Procter & Gamble, a role previously held by Renee Wilson before she was promoted to president of MSLGroup North America in September. Wilson will remain active on the P&G account, serving as executive sponsor for the business.
MSL declined to comment on specifics about its work with P&G. In April, it worked with the company's Dawn dish soap brand on its “Junior Wildlife Champions” educational program.
Glasgow's return to MSL marks the fourth appointment of a female executive to a leadership position at the firm in the last three months. Wilson replaced MSL Americas president Jim Tsokanos in September. Earlier, he was named in a class action lawsuit against MSL and parent Publicis Groupe as behaving in a derogatory manner towards female employees.
Former Kaplow Communications consumer lifestyle SVP Margarita Miranda-Abate joined MSL New York as SVP in the personal care practice at the end of August. The Publicis firm also named Shellie Winkler director of the health and corporate practices for North America at the end of last month.
MSL reported global revenue of $450 million and US revenue between $150 million and $200 million in 2011 for PRWeek's Agency Business Report.
Matt Warder, an EVP and global client relationship manager, has taken over Glasgow's duties at Edelman. He previously worked in the agency's London office before moving to Silicon Valley.
