Ex-Bank One CEO Stevens Joins GSW As President, COO

Healthcare shop Gerbig, Snell/Weisheimer & Associates has a new president who comes from the world of banking.

Kenneth T. Stevens takes over as president and chief operating officer of the Columbus, Ohio, shop after a stint at the Bank One Retail Group, where he was chairman and CEO.

The positions assumed by Stevens were previously held by Blane Walter, who took over as the agency’s chairman and CEO in May, following the retirement of Robert Gerbig, a company representative said.

Before joining Bank One, Stevens was an executive with Taco Bell and PepsiCo., and also worked at the McKinsey & Company consultancy.

GSW’s clients include Abbott Laboratories, Eli Lilly & Co. and Procter and Gamble.
