Sherman Assumes CEO Role at JWT NY

Well, a friend chimed in with this a little while ago, but guess we got beat to the punch. Anyhow, JWT has welcomed Peter Sherman as chief executive officer of its New York hub. Sherman had spent the last three-and-a-years as EVP/managing director for BBDO Europe and eight years in all at the agency prior to moving back to NYC. Sherman had spent well over a decade at  Omnicom-owned BBDO, which included a four-year stint as managing director of its San Francisco office and EVP/senior account director in NY.

From what we’ve been told, JWT North America CEO David Eastman‘s title remains the same, and despite the NYC shift, he will still oversee the WPP-owned agency’s Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and Canada offices, as well as units Digitaria, Lunchbox, JWT Action, JWT Inside, Casa and SCPF. Sherman, meanwhile, will focus specifically on overseeing New York operations. The latter exec adds in a statement, “It will be a privilege to lead this team.”
