Tim Jones has been tapped as chief operating officer for Publicis Groupe Marketing Services in the U.S. Jones, most recently CEO of Publicis Media Americas, will be charged with leading all agency and brand capabilities for the country, including creative, digital experience, media and health.
Jones, says Publicis, has been instrumental in bringing integrated client solutions that allowed the holding company to land clients in the last year including Kraft Heinz, Hulu, TikTok and Sephora, as well as helping it retain Reckitt Benckiser and Samsung's U.S. and digital business. Publicis says it also expanded its relationship with JM Smucker under Jones, for which it is now agency of record for omnichannel marketing.
Jones will be succeeded by Dave Penski, who takes the title of CEO of Publicis' Media Americas. Penski was most recently chief operating officer.
