The World: New York - Mindshare appoints Phil Cowdell to US CEO job

Mindshare has named Phil Cowdell as its new North American chief executive, after Scott Neslund left the role to pursue other interests.

Cowdell, who was most recently one of Mindshare's global client leaders, will be responsible for the management and operation of all agency activities in the five US and Canadian offices.

He will report to Mindshare's global chief executive, Dominic Proctor, who said: "Phil is uniquely qualified for this important and challenging job. His extensive experience with global clients and the breadth of his accomplishments are virtually unsurpassed within Mindshare's current ranks."
