Karlsson Named CCO of McCann Global; Bryan, Murphy Promoted to NY Co-CCOs

We’ve been hearing from tipsters all afternoon and just received confirmation from McCann that the agency network’s New York and London creative chairman, Linus Karlsson (pictured), has been officially named CCO for global brands. Karlsson was hired by McCann 15 months ago from Mother NY.

According to a statement from McCann, “Karlsson will focus on the network’s global clients, including his creative leadership role in Commonwealth, the joint venture created to manage Chevrolet globally. Karlsson will maintain his title as Chairman of McCann New York and London.”

Of course, Karlsson’s expanded global responsibility has left a bit of a hole in McCann’s New York office. The agency is filling it by promoting Sean Bryan and Tom Murphy, previously co-ECDs for McCann’s Verizon business, to NY co-CCOs.

And, in case these weren’t enough promotions/position changes for you, we should also mention that Andreas Dahlqvist, a member of McCann’s global leadership collective, will work with Karlsson as deputy global CCO. Dahlqvist will also be maintaining his current role as vice chairman of McCann NY. Now, who wants to make a colorful infographic of all this?
