Publicis Modem Alum Wendy Wahl Lands at RAPP

Six weeks after calling it quits at the constantly “upgrading” Publicis Modem, Wendy Wahl has found a new job as the lead of RAPP’s North American healthcare practice. Well, actually, Wahl will play a dual role at the agency’s New York office as she’ll also assume the title of director of client services on the non-healthcare side.

Juggling healthcare and client services roles isn’t novel to Wahl as she did the same thing during her six years at PM, where she was an EVP of marketing and handled accounts including GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi-Aventis (the latter of which is apparently still in Publicis Modem’s grasp). Prior to PM, Wahl spent eight years at Digitas and during her career, she’s worked with clients including AmEx, Delta, Allstate and Sirius.

Publicis Modem Loses Another

We assume this is part of the agency’s “upgrading” plan, but whatever the case, sources familiar with the matter confirm that Wendy Wahl has handed in her notice at Publicis Modem. The New York-based exec, who has served as EVP, marketing at the agency–where she’s spent the last six years–will stay on until early April. From what we’ve been told, clients are also aware of Wahl’s resignation. Prior to PM, Wahl spent nearly eight years at Digitas, eventually moving up to VP, associate marketing director.

And while we’re on the subject of Publicis Modem, we’ve been told that the Sanofi business remains intact at the agency and there’s no competitive review is underway–but we’re still trying to determine the status of LG.
