Wahl Leaves RAPP

We’ve received confirmation that Wendy Wahl is leaving her senior-level post at RAPP after nearly 18 months in order to “spend time with her family.” During her time at RAPP, Wahl served as EVP of the agency’s North American healthcare practice and director of client services. Prior to her most recent gig, Wahl spent six years at what was then Publicis Modem, last serving as EVP of marketing. During her career, Wahl also spent nearly eight years as an account director at Digitas.

As a result of Wahl’s departure, Robert Grammatica, currently RAPP’s global healthcare practice lead and managing director of its New York office, will serve as healthcare lead for RAPP in the US as well.

RAPP Finds Replacement for Terry Young

Now that Terry Young has landed a new gig at Epsilon, his former employer, RAPP New York, has found his replacement. The latter agency announced that Robert Grammatica will now assume the role of managing director in its Big Apple office. RAPP didn’t have to look too far as Grammatica had already been with the agency since 2007, first helping develop and grow its healthcare practice before taking on the position of global chief client officer earlier this year.

Prior to joining RAPP, Grammatica held EVP posts for several years at both Y&R and Wunderman, working with clients including Merck, Miller Brewing, Xerox, Guinness, MetLife and AT&T. Along with his new MD post, the exec will continue overseeing RAPP’s healthcare practice and client development efforts on a global basis.
