Powers Assumes Global CSO Role at McCann

Busy day on the IPG-related front, to say the least, as now McCann Erickson has announced that Suzanne Powers has joined the agency in the global role of EVP/chief strategy officer. Powers takes over for Daryl Lee, who was bumped up to global CEO of McCann sibling, UM. The new global CSO, meanwhile, arrives from CP+B, where she spent two-and-a-half-years in a similar position as global strategy officer.

In a statement, McCann Worldgroup chairman/CEO Harris Diamond says of his agency’s new hire, “We are pleased to have Suzanne join us. Suzanne has the energy, passion and skills to lead our incredibly talented group of strategic executives. She brings us a unique perspective on how to build global insights and ideas across our brands, geographies and culture.”

Prior to CP+B, Powers spent a decade at TBWA, moving up the ranks from account planner to global strategy director, working with brands including Mars, Nivea and GSK along the way.
