Publicis Groupe has appointed Nick Law Chief Creative Officer of Publicis Groupe and President of Publicis Communications, the company confirmed Monday.
The appointment is effective in May. Most recently Law has been vice chairman and chief creative officer at Interpublic agency R/GA. He’s been with that agency for close to two decades.
As president of Publicis Communications Law will oversee the Groupe’s creative agencies including Leo Burnett, Saatchi, Publicis Worldwide, BBH and new communications platform Marcel. The role was previously held by Arthur Sadoun, who was elevated to CEO Publicis Groupe last June.
“Nick is a true unicorn in our industry,” stated Sadoun. “Throughout his career, he has delivered world-class work that builds on what we believe all our clients need: the alchemy of creativity and tech. This modernity in ideas, combined with his obvious leadership skills, make Nick the perfect person to play such a pivotal role in our Groupe.”
