- IPG Mediabrands is restructuring its leadership team following the departure of North American CEO Jacki Kelley.
- Kelley was instrumental in negotiating a deal for Microsoft's creative business and will now work for parent company Interpublic Group.
- Until the CEO position is filled, brand leadership teams will be responsible for global clients in North America, working directly with the North American COO.
After Kelley played a role in the Microsoft win for IPG, She had proved her skills as a high-level leader. In a position with IPG — rather than Mediaworks — Kelley will be able to orchestrate things from a bigger picture.
