Both AdAge and AdWeek reported today that Hamish McLennan was named the new CEO of Y&R Advertising. Mssr. McLennan was previously the head of the Australian and New Zealand operations. No word on whether Sony and Jaguar will come back, but clearly the Crocodile-Man should give Y&R a leg up on the Foster's account. G'Day mate. Anne Fudge retains her role as Chairwomen and CEO of Y&R Brands. Not a complete bitch slap, but not a love tap either. Yeah, she's psyched about this. This occurring just 3 days after AdAge didn't bother to mention her as an advertising industry woman to watch (yeah, wonder why.).
Most importantly, AdAge broke the story at 10:28am EST and AdWeek followed up at 11:14. C'mon AdWeek, you're slipping.
