Momentum NY Undergoes MD Shift

We’ve received confirmation that Richard Black, who’s spent the last six-and-a-half years at the IPG-owned Momentum as an SVP and director of client services, has been bumped up to general manager of the agency’s New York office. From what we’ve been told, Black (pictured) replaces Laura Loughlin, who has transitioned to a similar role at Momentum Entertainment Group, which was launched back in June 2011. During his career, Black has worked on the account side at the likes of TracyLocke and Saatchi & Saatchi prior to joining Momentum, while Loughlin has spent well over a dozen years at the last agency.

In addition to the Black/Loughlin move, Momentum has promoted Tom Boccuzzi, who has spent the last five-plus years at said agency and has worked at the likes of Y&R and G2 in the past, has been promoted to the role of SVP, operations director NY working on the American Express business.
