Publicis Groupe is rejiggering its regional leadership organization.
Per the latest adjustment, Loris Nold, CEO of Publicis Groupe APAC since February 2018, will now oversee the Middle East and Africa.
Jarek Ziebinski, CEO of Publicis One, is appointed to the newly created role of CEO of Publicis Groupe for Northern and Central Europe.
In addition, the Groupe is installing two interim management heads, pending searches for permanent regional leaders. For now, Gerry Boyle -- CEO of Publicis Media APAC and EMEA -- will oversee Southern Europe and Tim Jones, CEO of Publicis Media North America, will oversee Latin America (excluding Brazil).
North America will be led by a unified executive committee; the makeup of this committee is still in the works. The company did note that the region will undergo further integration of its various operations.
The U.K. will continue to be led by Annette King, who has held the role since May 2018. France has been led by Agathe Bousquet since September 2017, and Justin Billingsley has been responsible for Germany/Switzerland/Austria since September 2017.
"To succeed, we need to implement the right balance between our global practices run by the Solutions and a country-led model to deliver them in an integrated way," stated Arthur Sadoun, chairman/CEO, Publicis Groupe. "This is why this move is a key milestone in our journey and will make our model stronger."
