The World: New York - Chris Jaques to replace McLean at Y&R

Chris Jaques, the chief executive of Young & Rubicam Asia and a 17-year veteran of the WPP-owned network, has been promoted to the post of chief executive of North America.

He takes over from Gord McLean, who has held the position for two-and-a-half years. McLean is moving to a global client services role.

The changes are the first high-level appointments to be made by the recently appointed chief executive of the network, Hamish McLennan.

The network has yet to find a replacement for Jaques, but is in the process of interviewing both internal and external candidates.
