Lubar Assumes Global CMO Role at McCann Worldgroup

alexlubar1After spending just 18 months as chief marketing officer, North America for McCann, Alex Lubar is quickly moving up the ranks as he’s now assumed the newly created position of global CMO at the Worldgroup. Prior to joining McCann, Lubar spent well over three years at Grey, last serving as SVP/new business. Says McCann CEO/chairman Harris Diamond in a statement, “What makes Alex so effective in business development, in addition to tenacity, is that he relishes the complexity of brand challenges in today’s complex business environment and he knows how to harness resources to create innovative multiplatform solutions.”

Along with Lubar’s promotion, McCann has also brought on fellow Grey alum Chioma Aduba as new business group director in its New York office.

Anyhow, peep Houston’s memo, which carries the subject “All is Fair in Love and War,” after the jump. Update: McCann finally made it official, saying Lubar will join the agency effective July 9 and will still be based in New York.
