Dentsu Aegis Network has appointed Will Swayne to global president of client solutions, a new role at the company.
Swayne was formerly global president at Carat, a role he left last fall when he was succeeded by Christine Removille, who joined the agency from Accenture.
Last year when the agency announced Removille’s appointment it noted that Swayne would be taking on a new global client role, now disclosed, at the group.
In the new post Swayne is tasked with better aligning client needs with capabilities across DAN’s portfolio of agencies and specialist firms spanning creative, media, customer experience and data.
Swayne reports to Peter Huijboom, DAN’s CEO Global Clients and Media Brands, who stated: “Will is an experienced leader with an exceptional talent for building long-term client relationships ... With a group-wide remit, Will can now draw on the full breadth and depth of our services to strengthen those relationships further.”
