McCann New York appoints Devika Bulchandani as president

McCann Worldgroup has revealed that it is to elevate Devika Bulchandi, who presently serves as managing director of global strategy in the New York office, to the position of New York president, reporting directly to Chris MacDonald, McCann Worldgroup’s North America president.

Harris Diamond, chairman and CEO of the global advertising agency, commented: “Devika has been instrumental in helping lead the New York office by ensuring that our clients are able to take advantage of the complexities of the marketing ecosystem today and, along with Chris Macdonald, by building a diverse and creative culture in the office.”

As part of this change MacDonald himself will assume leadership of all North American advertising agencies with responsibility for fostering integration between Worldgroup divisions scattered across the continent.

Finally Suzanne Powers has taken on the role of global chief strategy officer which comes with a broadening of responsibilities to include the integration of strategic competencies between different units.

Last year Diamond shared the secrets of his success with The Drum through a series of interviews.
