IPG Mediabrands’ UM unit has promoted Lynn Lewis to U.S. CEO.
Lewis, who has been serving as East Coast regional president and global CMO of UM, reports to the agency’s global CEO Daryl Lee.
“She is a homegrown leader,” Lee noted in a statement announcing Lewis’ appointment.
Lewis has spent most of her career at UM and its predecessor/sister agency McCann, which she joined in 1994.
Her career includes building and running J3, UM’s dedicated media unit servicing Johnson & Johnson, where Lewis pioneered an integrated planning, buying and analytics model which has successfully scaled across all of UM’s accounts.
