Expanded Role for JWT’s Quish

NEW YORK Rob Quish, a global executive vice president in charge of recruiting at JWT in New York, is adding the role of region president in North America, a new post, the WPP Group agency said.

Quish, who also serves as chief of staff to worldwide CEO Bob Jeffrey, will now oversee five JWT offices in North America—Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, San Francisco and Toronto—as well as JWT Technology’s offices in Atlanta and San Jose, Calif., JWT said.

Quish, 44, who joined the agency in April, will continue to report to Jeffrey.

JWT’s New York and Detroit offices will continue to be led by New York president Rosemarie Ryan and Detroit president George Rogers, JWT said. Ryan and Rogers also report to Jeffrey.

“This is about delivering more, better, faster for clients,” said Jeffrey, in a statement. “By aligning our strongest, most senior leaders with specific geographies, we are providing the highest level of accountability to our clients. With Rob, Rosemarie and George in place, I am confident in our ability to maintain and grow our leadership position in North America.”
