McDonald’s Names Bell CEO

McDonald’s appointed president and COO Charlie Bell, 43, to CEO last week after the sudden death on Monday of chairman and CEO Jim Cantalupo from an apparent heart attack. The board also named its presiding director, Andrew McKenna, 74, non-executive chairman. Under Cantalupo’s guidance, the company launched its first global ad campaign. Omnicom’s DDB in Chicago is McDonald’s lead U.S. agency.
