Scarpelli, who previously served as president of both the Cannes Lion Press and Film juries in 2007, will be joined by nine others on Titanium/Integrated at this year’s advertising bacchanal including Iain Tait and Linus Karlsson (the new McCann NY/London chairman/CCO who we hear is currently on an international introduction tour).
