- Bozell Worldwide, New York, has reorganised its senior management structure with the formation of an elite management group, dubbed "the office of the chairman."
The reorganisation comes shortly after Leo-Arthur Kelmenson, the Bozell chairman, took on the role of chief executive following the elevation of David Bell to the role of chairman and chief executive of the Bozell holding company, True North.
Four executives have been promoted internally to the office of the chairman and they will be joined by the former Ogilvy & Mather director, Kelly O'Dea (Campaign, 23 April). He joins Bozell in the role of vice chairman for international operations and global client development. He left O&M, which is part of the WPP Group, at the end of 1998 where he was president for worldwide client service.
The four promoted from within Bozell to the office of the chairman are Gene Bartley, president for North American operations, who becomes vice chairman; Ramesh Rajan, executive vice president and chief financial officer, who becomes vice chairman; Mike Vogel, president of the Southfield, Michigan, office, who becomes vice chairman for the office and DaimlerChrysler global operations; and Jay Schulberg, who will continue in his role as vice chairman and chief creative officer.
