Well, guess barely eight months was long enough for Mark Modesto to figure out that it was time to see what lies beyond MARC USA. Modesto, the 30-year Draftfcb alum who joined MARC’s Chicago operation last October as president, is now assuming the CEO position at Ryan Partnership, an integrated marketing agency that has offices in Wilton, CT, Chicago, San Francisco and Columbus, OH and is housed within the Hyper Marketing fold. Modesto isn’t going it alone, though, as his old MARC partner-in-crime John Immesoete, who served as ECD at said agency, is also joining Ryan Partnership as its new CCO. The MARC alums will officially join Ryan on June 4.
Anyhow, you might remember the name Zain Raj, who took over as president/CEO when SolutionSet and MediaWhiz merged last summer and then ultimately assumed the CEO title when SolutionSet/MediaWhiz joined forces with D.L. Ryan to form Hyper Marketing at the beginning of this year. Anyhow, check out the lengthy memo from Raj regarding the new hires after the jump.
