G2: Still Alive, Adds New Management in NA Offices

Yes, our marathon G2 coverage continues, folks. In the aftermath of the Wendy Lurrie “resignation” yesterday, the agency has sent us some good news, which concerns a changing of the guard in its management team across its national offices. This part of what G2 USA CEO John Paulson previously called a “larger restructuring” of the WPP agency.

Here are some key changes: Tom Conti, who joined the Philly office of  G2 Interactive back in 2008 and is currently president of G2′s Interactive practice, is taking on added responsibilities over the agency’s portfolio of healthcare businesses in the Relationship Marketing practice as well as oversight of the agency’s Media practice. Newbies to G2, meanwhile, include executive director/GM of G2 Chicago, Nancy Leibig (right), once the “business development golden girl” Draftfcb who left after a decade to take on a GM post at DDB Chicago for three years.

Leibig’s San Francisco counterpart will be Brent Shedd, who is taking on the same post in the Bay Area and arrives from Cheil Worldwide subsidiary, One Agency. Prior to that, Shedd had stints at agencies including Ammirati Puris Lintas and The Richards Group.
