Weber Shandwick Promotes Three in Digital

Weber Shandwick has promoted three executives in its digital practice. Chris Vary is now EVP of digital program innovation, Patrick Chaupham has been named SVP of digital operations, and Colin Moffat has been appointed SVP of digital content strategy.

The changes come at a time of even more change in this area of the firm, including the addition of Jim Paul as executive creative director, Matt Dickman as EVP of social business innovation, and Vanessa Muir Johnson as SVP of digital.

In the release announcing the changes, Weber also touts some of the digital practice’s recent work, including the social media launch of Simple Skincare last month, the centennial campaign for L.L. Bean, and the firm’s relationship with Mattel, which includes digital and crisis work.
