Barbarian is promoting Courtney Berry to managing director to lead key client relationships like JBL Audio, L'Oreal, Panasonic Avionics and Ad Council. She’s also tasked with implementing the agency's strategic vision, and overseeing the account management and project management departments. She will continue to serve in her previous position as group business director.
"She is the perfect person to lead Barbarian while we continue our active search for a new CEO,” said Aaron Lau, CEO of agency parent company Cheil North America.
That search began in March after the departure of Cathy Butler who left to become CEO at Omnicom Group’s Organic.
