The Week: People news - MediaCom promotes Jowett

David Jowett, the commercial director at MediaCom, has been promoted to the role of managing director.

Jane Ratcliffe, the chief executive of the agency, put a management board in place at the WPP-owned agency in November last year, but had held off appointing a sole managing director. Ratcliffe said the new appointment was as a result of an increased workload at the agency.
