Dentsu Aegis Network has hired Bloomberg deputy chief operating officer Jacki Kelley as president, chief client officer of the U.S., marking her return to the agency world, reports Lindsay Rittenhouse of Adweek.
Rittenhouse writes, “Kelley had been in her prior role since December 2017, when she was promoted from COO of Bloomberg’s media division. She was previously CEO of North America and president of global clients for IPG Mediabrands before leaving to join Bloomberg in September 2014 and was global CEO of UM Worldwide before that.
“Before IPG, Kelley was vice president of worldwide strategy and solutions for Yahoo after spending 18 years at USA Today.
