So, not every top executive who leaves a WPP Group or Publicis Groupe agency has to wait six months before starting a new gig.
JWT, amid the exit of North American CEO Peter Sherman, is expanding its leadership team in New York. Lynn Power, former president of Arnold in New York, is joining the WPP Group agency as managing director. As such, she'll share responsibilities with the current managing director, Claire Capeci. Both will report to new global president Gustavo Martinez.
Peter Sherman has made a big impression in just four months as CEO of JWT's New York office—so much so that he has now been promoted.
JWT's global Puma win represents a much needed creative platform for the New York office and the agency globally. Jeff Benjamin, the New York-based chief creative officer for North America, was a key player on JWT's pitch team, along with New York CEO Peter Sherman, according to an internal email from JWT global CEO Bob Jeffrey.
