The Week: People News - Meyers to replace Cranmer

WPP has appointed Bob Meyers as the global chief executive of Research International. He will be taking over from Mark Cranmer, who resigned last week (Campaign, 10 August). Based in Chicago, Meyers will increase Research International's profile in the US, where its name is weaker than in other markets. Meyers, who is the current chief executive of WPP's market research company Millward Brown, will join on 1 October.
