In the wake of the announcement by worldwide president Tim Lindsay that he will soon depart the company, Lowe & Partners chief executive officer Jerry Judge will install a new global management team.
Ian Creasey, currently president of the firm's Asia-Pacific region, will move to London in January to assume the new post of regional president, Europe/Middle East/Africa. Peter Minnium, the regional
president for Lowe in Latin America, will continue in that role. Tom Bernardin and Gary Goldsmith, respectively the chief executive officer and chairman/chief creative officer of Lowe New York, will
also retain their positions. Lindsay will not be replaced.
"While I was disappointed by Tim's decision to leave the agency, I respect his wish to take stock of his personal and professional
aspirations at this point in his career," Judge said in a press release. "We're fortunate to have so many talented individuals within our management ranks at Lowe, and I have every confidence our new
leadership team will continue to drive the agency forward."
Lowe has added more than 200 new clients in 2003, including the global business for Electrolux and Interbrew/Stella Artois; Federated
Department Stores and CarFAX in the U.S.; and Bacardi and Novartis in Mexico.
