A few weeks after we first reported that G2 USA CEO John Paulson was leaving the agency, we’ve finally come to find out who his successor is: Harvey Kipnis, most recently regional director for OgilvyOne North America. We’ve been told G2 made the announce today and and from what we hear, Kipnis is expected to assume his CEO post in G2 USA’s New York hub in the next week or so.
Though he only spent the last 10 months as regional director, NA at OgilvyOne, Kipnis’s relationship with O&M dates back to 2003, when he first joined up as managing director of OgilvyOne New York. Since that time, Kipnis has also served as chief growth officer for Ogilvy North America. Prior to O&M, the exec spent 11 years at Digitas, where he held various positions.
