BBH Promotes Neil Munn to Global CEO

2fda519BBH promoted Neil Munn from global chief operating officer to global chief executive officer, replacing Gwyn Jones, who leaves to pursue a career outside of advertising.

Munn has served as global chief operating officer since 2012 and arrived at BBH in 2006, as CEO of ZAG Brand Ventures. Before that, Munn served as global marketing director for Lynx/Axe and category director, beverages Europe for Unilever.

“Neil is perfect casting for what is now needed from the group CEO,” said Simon Sherwood, BBH’s group chairman. “He has proper marketing and comms pedigree, is highly commercial with a deep understanding of client organisations and brands, and has a truly global perspective.”

Jones first became group chief executive officer in 2012, after Publicis Groupe took control of the agency, and his departure coincides with the conclusion of the earn-out period for management. Campaign Live reports that founders Sir John Hegarty and Sir Nigel Bogle “will continue to work at the agency for the foreseeable future, albeit in a reduced capacity.”
