Publicis One has made appointments for its global and regional leadership, nominated by CEO Jarek Ziebinski (pictured).
“At the beginning of this year we started a very significant transformation of Publicis Groupe that includes the creation of Publicis One, a new global communications enterprise. As we embark on this journey, our very first mission is to create a strong leadership team,” said Ziebinski.
On the global management level, Alice McCreath has been named chief financial officer, Maree Prendergast as chief talent officer, and Karen Lim as the communications director.
In Latin America, Monica Gadsby has been appointed the regional chief executive officer while Joseph Piazza has been named regional chief financial officer.
In Asia, Nicolas Menat has been appointed regional chief executive officer, and Ricardo Roces as regional chief financial officer.
To ensure adequate attention is given to all markets within the region of EMEA, Johan Parmentier has been appointed to regional CEO for Benelux, Misa Lukic to lead Central Eastern Europe as regional CEO, and Kevin Tromp as CEO for Africa. The trio will be supported by David Clark, who has been named regional CFO for EMEA.
Ziebinski added, “The new Publicis One team comprises of experienced leaders who represent the crème de la crème of Publicis Groupe talent, bringing diverse backgrounds, skill sets, entrepreneurial mindset and a brand agnostic approach to our work.”
Maurice Lévy, chairman and CEO of Publicis Groupe said, “Publicis One is a totally new approach to the marketing with end-to-end solutions. I am convinced that under the leadership of Jarek Ziebinski, Publicis One will deliver the very best to our clients, attract the best talents and offer great career opportunities to be the greatest agency in each market. I have great confidence in the team chosen by Jarek.”
All the newly-appointed global and regional leaders of Publicis One are already in their new roles and are fully operational in their respective markets.
