R/GA names Charnock chief strategy officer
R/GA hired William Charnock as chief strategy officer, a newly created position, effective January 25.
Reporting to Bob Greenberg, agency CEO and global chief creative officer, he will oversee the agency's global strategy and manage its strategy, planning and research teams. He will also oversee the international development of its strategic services group and develop thought leadership programs across the agency, according to an R/GA statement.
Charnock, or another R/GA representative, was not immediately available for comment.
Financial planning company Ameriprise announced last month that it has chosen R/GA as its agency of record, handling both traditional advertising and digital. The first creative from the partnership is expected to debut early this year. The company's previous AOR was Saatchi & Saatchi.
