Grey Group CEO/chairman Jim Heekin announced that current Grey West MD Brad Fogel has been promoted to president of the group’s San Francisco and LA offices while also taking on management oversight of Grey Atlanta. During his tenure, Fogel–who joined Grey West as CMO in 2007 and then later replaced Betsy Sperry as MD in November 2008–was “instrumental” in helping Grey West win new business like the BMW of North America $80 million U.S. regional ad account and the $30 million Reliant Energy business according to a statement from Heekin.

Prior to joining Grey, Fogel has two stints at Publicis & Hal Riney in SF and held senior management posts at Hill Holiday, FCB, Y&R and Saatchi & Saatchi during this three-decade advertising career. In addition to Fogel, Grey also promoted seven-year agency vet Sam Hosokawa to MD of the Atlanta office.
