Digital design agency Huge has named Pete Stein as its new global chief executive officer. Stein will be based in the IPG network’s Brooklyn headquarters and oversee a team of more than 1,400 across 13 global offices.

The official announcement came during an all-staff town hall meeting today.

Stein succeeds Michael Koziol, who was promoted from international president to CEO last March following the departure of agency founder Aaron Shapiro. According to a statement from Huge, Koziol is leaving to “focus on private equity ventures in media and entertainment, retail and ecommerce.”

“It’s much easier to drive change and move toward the future by being part of a digitally native company, because they don’t have the legacy ways of doing things.”
