Kerker Marketing Communications in Minneapolis shuffled its top management last week, promoting Chuck Kelly to president and naming Chuck Wanous chairman and chief executive officer.
Wanous, who had served as president since 1985, said the move is part of a "long-range strategic plan" for the $41 million agency, whose clients include Sub-Zero, 3M and Principal Financial.
Kelly, previously the agency's director of client services, will head up day-to-day operations while Wanous focuses on strategic direction and new business.
Kelly began his career at Kerker in 1977 as an account executive. He worked at other agencies in Chicago before returning to Kerker in 1983. Wanous has been with the shop for 30 years. --Aaron Baar
