Interbrand Names a New CEO for North America

Josh Feldmeth replaces Lee Carpenter

Josh Feldmeth is the new North American CEO of Interbrand, succeeding Lee Carpenter, who is leaving the brand consultancy after 12 years.

Feldmeth has served as chief of Interbrand’s New York, San Francisco and Toronto offices since last year, working on accounts like UPS, AT&T and General Electric. In his new role, he adds responsibility for offices in Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio and the shop's BrandWizard division.

The former PricewaterhouseCoopers consultant joined Interbrand in 2002 as a vp of strategy in Dayton. He transferred to the Zürich office in 2007 to oversee analytics services across Europe and two years later became managing director of Amsterdam. In October 2010, he returned to the U.S. to become CEO of New York.

In his new role, Feldmeth remains in New York and reports to global CEO Jez Frampton.
