Digitas' Jim Rossman is jumping ship to join AKQA as its president/chief operating officer. Rossman will leave his current role as chief operating officer at Digitas, the Publicis Groupe direct and digital marketing unit, later in April to join AKQA.

“As we continue to rapidly expand, we want to add senior leadership to the AKQA executive team,” said Tom Bedecarre, CEO of AKQA, in a statement. “We're looking forward to welcoming Jim later in April and introducing him to our organization,”

Rossman will be based in the AKQA New York office and will report directly to Bedecarre in his new role.
