New CEO at JWT Canada
JWT Canada of Toronto has promoted Susan Kim-Kirkland to the position of chief executive officer. Outgoing CEO Tony Pigott has been appointed to the newly-created position of global chief executive officer of JWT Ethos, the agency's corporate social responsibility practice. Pigott will also be non-executive chairman of JWT Canada. Kim-Kirkland was most recently executive vice-president and managing director of JWT Canada, in which position she headed the firm's Walmart account. Ethos, which was founded in Toronto by Pigott, has recently expanded to London and Atlanta, with future plans to move into New York and Shanghai. "It's been my privilege to lead JWT Canada, and I am incredibly proud to see Susan take on the role of CEO," said Pigott. "She's been a trusted colleague, and I am confident her entrepreneurial spirit and vision for the future will continue to grow the agency. At the same time, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead the global rollout of JWT Ethos. It's clear there is a large and growing marketplace for social change. Consumers the world over believe that companies and brands should take a lead role on issues that matter. To do this well requires great ideas, creativity and boldness. Companies and institutions that tap into this movement in the right way will truly distinguish their brands, drive business and make a major impact on the future."
