TBWA\Chiat\Day New York CEO Nancy Reyes is joining BBDO as its Americas CEO. She is taking over for St. John Walshe, who is departing from the agency after five years in the role. Reyes will report to BBDO President and CEO Andrew Robertson.
“Nancy is obsessed with talent development—she founded a program called Circle of Women to coach and prepare women, half of whom are women of color—for the C-suite,” Robertson said in a statement. “She is obsessed with clients and their businesses. And she is obsessed with the importance of great work and its contribution to those businesses. I’m thrilled that she will be bringing these obsessions, her radiant energy, and her proven leadership capability, to BBDO.”
