Publicis North America announced the addition of Julie Levin as chief marketing officer, succeeding Chris Shumaker, who left last year to become North American chief marketing officer at FCB. She will begin the position on September 8th.
Levin arrives from Richmond-based The Martin Agency, where last year she served as chief growth officer and helped win new business including Stoli vodka and Sparkle paper towels. Before The Martin Agency, Levin spent three years as head of business development and global business director at BBH New York. She was also a managing partner and director of business development at Mcgarrybowen, helping to land clients such as Kraft Foods, Pfizer and Verizon Wireless.
“She’s such a personality, so bright and driven with a lot of energy and has such a depth of experience with clients,” Publicis North America CEO Andrew Bruce told Adweek. “She won’t just bring in new clients in but will continue to work with them.”
