GolinHarris has announced the appointment of Jonathan Hughes and Matt Neale as international presidents.
They will report to agency CEO, Fred Cook, and will work closely with Chairman, Al Golin, and vice chairman, Ellen Ryan Mardiks.
Cook said: “Jon, Matt and Gary’s list of accomplishments is very impressive. Matt and Jon have driven our London office into one of the hottest brands in the market, while tripling our revenue. I am confident they will continue that same trajectory for the entire agency.”
Hughes and Neale joined the agency together in 2005 from sister agency Weber Shandwick to lead GH’s UK operations.
In 2008, they assumed co-leadership of Europe and have since tripled revenue in the UK and have added offices in Paris, Stockholm and Bucharest.
In their new roles, Hughes and Neale will continue to manage the London office and oversee Europe while adding Asia to their portfolio.
Rudnick, who joined GH in 1996, has held a number of leadership positions and in his new role, Rudnick will be responsible for leading the growth and operations in the US, Canada and Latin America.
Rudnick will be succeeded in Chicago by Patti Temple-Rocks, who is rejoining the agency after stints at Leo Burnett and the Dow Chemical Company.
