- JWT has hired Lynn Power, former president of Arnold, as its new managing director.
- Power's responsibilities will be shared with Claire Capeci, the firm's current managing director.
- The new hire follows the recent departure of JWT's North American CEO, Peter Sherman, for Omnicom.
It's refreshing to see a female leadership team in an often male-dominated field. JWT certainly isn't slowing down due to Sherman's departure. Power's demonstrated leadership abilities from her time at other agencies will server her well in this new position.
