R/GA, part of Interpublic, has promoted Richard Ting to executive vice president, global chief design officer. With this appointment, R/GA said it is unifying all design disciplines under one umbrella with the goal of fostering greater integration.
Ting will also be responsible for growing and evolving R/GA’s data and AI-driven design capabilities while continuing in his role as a partner for R/GA Ventures.
“For this new role, we needed someone that would not only re-shape, develop, and train our design teams, but also create a new vision for design at R/GA,” stated agency founder and CEO Bob Greenberg, to whom Ting reports. “Richard has worked on some of our most iconic work and has built some of our most innovative teams and capabilities – I could not think of a better person to lead us forward in this area.”
Ting is an 11-year veteran of the agency and will continue to serve as executive creative director for the agency’s Nike account.
