NEW YORK Beyond Interactive has promoted Nick Pahade to executive vice president, managing director.

In the newly created post, he will oversee the New York and Ann Arbor, Mich., offices of the interactive agency, a part of Grey Global Group’s MediaCom. He will report to Dene Callas, president of MediaCom U.S.
