Nick Law--a veteran of R/GA, currently serving as its VP and global chief creative officer--has been hired to move over to the newly created dual role of Publicis Groupe CCO and president of Publicis Communications. He is set to start his new career chapter at Publicis in May.
Law will join the Publicis executive committee and report directly to Arthur Sadoun, chairman and CEO of Publicis Groupe.
