Now that Terry Young has landed a new gig at Epsilon, his former employer, RAPP New York, has found his replacement. The latter agency announced that Robert Grammatica will now assume the role of managing director in its Big Apple office. RAPP didn’t have to look too far as Grammatica had already been with the agency since 2007, first helping develop and grow its healthcare practice before taking on the position of global chief client officer earlier this year.
Prior to joining RAPP, Grammatica held EVP posts for several years at both Y&R and Wunderman, working with clients including Merck, Miller Brewing, Xerox, Guinness, MetLife and AT&T. Along with his new MD post, the exec will continue overseeing RAPP’s healthcare practice and client development efforts on a global basis.
