Why not wind down the day with a little people news, shall we? Six months after rejoining Carmichael Lynch to assume the role of chief strategy officer, Marcus Fischer is adding president to his title. In turn, Fischer replaces Doug Spong, who isn’t leaving the Minneapolis-based IPG agency but remaining on as managing partner (which he’s been for over two decades) and continuing to serve as president of its PR division, Carmichael Lynch Spong.

As for Fischer, the new Carmichael Lynch prez rejoined said agency last August to serve as its first-ever CSO and subsequently consolidated its¬†research, analytics and media groups into one strategic resource, according to the agency. Prior to CL, he spent four years at fellow Twin Cities shop, space150, last serving as CEO. During his first time out at CL, Fischer spent five years (’03-08) working n the agency’s planning department. Early on in his career, Fischer worked in account planning at Fallon.
