This evening Young & Rubicam announced the promotion of two key executives.

Jim Radosevic will be President of Y&R New York and Sean Howard will be COO of Y&R North America, effective immediately.

Radosevic, who previously served as EVP and Global Creative Director of the agency’s New York office, most recently worked on the “Beginnings” campaign for Dell. He will report to North America President and CEO Matt Anthony, who chose him to launch VML’s New York office before he joined the Y&R team in 2011.

Howard has been General Manager of the New York office sinceĀ 2012; in his new role, he will be “responsible for ensuring collaboration across offices”. Prior to joining Y&R, Howard was Global Client Services Director at Wunderman, where he led the T-Mobile and Microsoft accounts.

Anthony writes:

“Jim has the rare ability to successfully wear several hats – digital creative, business manager, client leader, team builder and brand advocate…and Sean will be absolutely critical in helping me build and develop [our] competitive advantages across the network.”
