Another day, another IPG memo obtained. One thing we can confirm according the note sent to staff this morning from Jacki Kelley, North American CEO/president, global clients for IPG Mediabrands, is that the agency has welcomed Teddy Lynn and Mark Himmelsbach to the fold.
As our ever-reliable tipsters hinted at a couple of weeks ago, the pair, who recently left BBDO NY, will be working together once again as they’re now serving as CCO and COO, respectively, of a new Mediabrands unit called Mediabrands Publishing. This actually marks Lynn’s second stint within the IPG umbrella as he last served as ECD/content & experiences at UM for nearly three before joining BBDO. During their time at the latter agency, Lynn and Himmelsbach held the titles of EVP/director of content and EVP/director of digital strategy, North America, respectively.
Anyhow, you can read Kelley’s memo after the jump to explain what Mediabrands Publishing entails.
