Fallon Names Wall International President

CHICAGO Fallon Worldwide has promoted Michael Wall to president of its international operations, effective immediately, the agency said.

In the new post, Wall, 37, who was one of the managing partners of the Publicis Groupe-owned agency’s London office, will manage all non-U.S. operations for the network’s offices in London, Hong Kong, Sao Paolo, Singapore and Tokyo, as well as spearhead any future international expansion.

He will report to Fallon chairman and founder Pat Fallon. The North American operations, which include the Publicis Groupe agency’s Minneapolis and New York offices, will continue to report to Fallon.

“Creating this position shows our belief in Michael as a leader as well as Fallon’s serious commitment to expanding our global presence,” said Fallon in a statement. “While Fallon plans to expand internationally, we will do it skillfully and remain true to the unique qualities of the Fallon brand. I am 100 percent confident Michael is the right person for this job.”

The international offices had previously reported to worldwide president David Lubars, who was named chairman and chief creative officer of Omnicom’s BBDO North America in June. Fallon is still searching for an executive creative director in the wake of Lubars’ departure.
