NEW YORK New Lowe worldwide CEO Stephen Gatfield will lead the agency for just three years, and, in the final year, he will hand off to a successor, said agency parent Interpublic Group in a Thursday filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

“It is understood that the final year of the Lowe assignment will involve the transition of executive responsibilities to successor Lowe Worldwide management,” IPG said in the filing, known as an 8-K.
