HOTLINE: Appointment at J. Walter Thompson

Michael Maedel has been appointed worldwide president of J. Walter Thompson as part of a new leadership structure. He will continue to lead JWT Europe, Middle East and Africa, but with extra responsibility for Asia-Pacific. In addition, the group president, Miles Colebrook, is expected to retire at the end of the year. This follows the news broken in Campaign (1 August) that Bob Jeffrey is becoming the chief executive officer while Peter Schweitzer steps up to chairman.
