Ex-Mediacom Scotland MD takes managing partner role in US

Euan Jarvie, former MD of Mediacom Scotland and Ireland, has joined the media firm's US executive team in the newly created position of managing partner, chief client officer.

Based in New York, he will report to Doug Checkeris, CEO of MediaCom North America.

In his new role as chief client officer, he will help develop all aspects of client facing operations, focusing on areas such as organisational structure, talent development, best practices and collaboration. In addition, as part of the U.S. senior leadership team, Jarvie will help drive growth and set overall direction for the organization.

Stephen Allan, MediaCom’s global chairman and CEO, said: “Euan’s move to the US exemplifies how we can tap into the tremendous talent that exists within our network to build a stronger, more unified global organization. Euan has been instrumental in building and growing MediaCom’s business in Scotland and Ireland. Putting his sizable talents to work in the US – one of our most important markets – will help us grow faster, work smarter, and most importantly, bring better results to our clients.”

Checkeris added: “We are thrilled that Euan has joined our US team. With Euan on board, our most senior people, including me, will have the opportunity to spend even more time providing strategic direction to our clients, and, of course, focusing on business growth and leadership opportunities.”

Jarvie joined MediaCom in 1997 to found the company’s first Edinburgh office. Last year, Jarvie was charged with starting MediaCom’s operation in the Republic of Ireland, before taking a Lonon-based global role at the start of this year.

Prior to joining MediaCom, he held positions at several major agencies, including WWAV Rapp Collins, O&M Media, TMD Carat Manchester and Zenith Media.
