OMD UK CEO Steve Williams becomes president of PHD New York
Ominicom Media Group has announced a management reshuffle at its various media agencies as Steve Williams, currently CEO of OMD Group UK, becomes the new president of PHD New York.
Williams will not be directly replaced in London. Instead his duties will be assumed by Dan Clays, the new OMD UK managing director and Robert Fitch, the managing director of Manning Gottlieb OMD.
They will report to Omnicom Media Group's UK CEO Philippa Brown.
She said: “We wish Steve well in his new role which is a brilliant opportunity for a very talented individual. He leaves behind very strong management teams who have together made OMD and Manning Gottlieb OMD two of the strongest media brands in the industry."
Williams will take up the new post in April. His appointment is part of a new management line up for PHD US, which sees Monica Karo, OMG president of integrated global accounts, become the new CEO for PHD US.
"I’m delighted to be part of driving the next stage of PHD’s growth in the US in this exciting new role," Williams said.
