Cheil Worldwide agency Barbarian has hired Steven Moy as CEO, effective immediately.

Moy joins the agency after about two years with R/GA as evp, U.S. chief technology officer, where he was responsible for monetizing R/GA’s technology partnerships and investments, delivering business results for clients globally. At Barbarian, Moy fills the vacancy left when former chief executive officer Cathy Butler left to join Omnicom’s Organic as CEO in late April.

“Steven has long been a fearless advocate for his clients, a perfect fit for Barbarian’s equally-as-fearless tenacity in helping our clients reach their ambitions,” Barbarian managing director Courtney Berry wrote in a statement.
