Medley will lead Publicis in the UK

Medley will join as MD atthe end of the month, reporting to worldwide CEO Eric Giuily and leading a team of 12. Medley said: ‘The UK arm could and should play a greater role in the network. I will look at new business, acquisitions and positioning to create a more striking identity.'
