Stolarz Steps into Director of Strategy Role at MRM

arianamrmfeatAfter spending the last four years at mcgarrybowen, where she last served as managing director/digital strategy & social media, Ariana Stolarz has, as of last week, officially moved on and joined up with MRM, where she now serves as EVP/director of strategy for the agency’s eastern region that includes the New York and Princeton offices. According to the MRM buildup, the new EVP’s “perspective on building global insights and ideas across brands, geographies and culture will add tremendous benefits to our clients, navigating the intersection between strategic branding, digital transformation, and the world we live in.” Someone cue some dramatic flair from Hans Zimmer, stat.

As for Stolarz, prior to mcgarrybowen, the exec spent several years on the digital strategy side at the Vidal Partnership as well as JWT.

MRM Loses a Pair of Execs

Sources familiar with the matter confirm that a couple of execs from have parted or are parting ways with MRM. We’ve been told that Adam Donnelley, who’s spent seven years at said agency and most recently served as EVP/director of strategy out of the New York and Princeton offices, has already resigned and is heading back to Australia. Donnelley (pictured) was originally part of the McCann Worldgroup Australia board and headed up MRM’s Sydney operations before returning to the U.S. four years ago to serve as EVP/worldwide account director on GM at the latter agency.

Meanwhile, sources also confirm that fellow seven-year MRM vet Dave Hohman will be leaving the agency at week’s end. Hohman, who also worked out of New York, held the title of EVP/global performance director and led the agency’s data & analytics practice. During his career, the exec held similar positions at the likes of Wunderman/Y&R Brands. No word yet on if MRM has immediate plans to replace either exec.
