Maguire Advances at MPG

Phyllis Maguire has been promoted to executive vice president and managing director of Havas-owned Media Planning Group. In that capacity, she oversees all spot buying. Maguire, who had been senior vice president, director of local broadcast, will continue to be based in Boston. The change in title reflects her enhanced status within MPG’s domestic operations following the integration more than a year ago of MPG and the media department of Havas’ Arnold ad agency.
