- D'Arcy Worldwide CEO and chairman, Arthur Selkowitz has joined Leo Burnett's Roger Haupt and Richard Fizdale among the leadership of the Bcom3 group, taking the title of vice chairman and chief client officer. The move comes as part of the sweeping management changes announced by the group this week. John Farrell, who has been running North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa as president of D'Arcy Transatlanic, will takeover as president and CEO of D'Arcy Worldwide.
The shake-up within Bcom3 also sees former O&M London managing director Richard Pinder take over as Leo Burnett's regional managing director for Asia Pacific. Pinder left O&M for a Leo Burnett regional director post in June. His swift elevation follows the appointment of former Asia Pacific president Stephen Gatfield to the post of Leo Burnett Worldwide's chief operating officer.
Starcom Mediavest Group has announced no replacement as yet for chief operating officer Robert Brennan, who became president of Leo Burnett Worldwide in this week's reshuffle.
