McCann Worldgroup names first agency global president
McCann Worldgroup appointed Stephanie Nerlich as its first global president. Nerlich will report to Daryl Lee, global CEO of McCann and McCann Worldgroup.
Nerlich will partner with the regional presidents of McCann Worldgroup agencies to expand the company’s capabilities in global markets. She will also provide executive leadership and counsel on McCann’s Verizon business in the U.S. Nerlich’s dual role is part of a new leadership structure, introduced by Lee, in which top executives take on responsibilities at both the agency and client levels.
Nerlich joins from Havas, where she was North American CEO and global chief client officer for the Havas Creative Group. Nerlich has also held leadership positions at several agencies, including executive VP at MDC Partners, president-CEO of Grey and president-CEO of Lowe Roche.
