lucalindnerJust over a year after taking on an expanded position as president of McCann Worldgroup Americas, adding to his existing role as president of Latin America, Africa and Middle East, Luca Lindner has now been elevated to the role of McCann Worldgroup president, proper. The nine-year McCann vet, as you may know, most recently served in a co-president role at Worldgroup alongside, with each leading their respective regions. Of course, Martinez left McCann to take on the role of global president of JWT, with the plan being to succeed the latter’s chairman/CEO Bob Jeffrey in 2015.  As a result, Lindner has been promoted to the newly created global role, overseeing all McCann Worldgroup operations and reporting to CEO, Harris Diamond. From what we’ve been told, there are no plans to replace Lindner’s former position at the agency.

Lindner, wh0 kicked off his ad career at TBWA\Paris, spent a handful of years as vice chairman of Leo Burnett EMEA and president of its Fiat Coordination Center.
