McCann Worldgroup announced today the promotion of Kate MacNevin, now Global CEO, MRM//McCann. McCann says MacNevin, most recently Global President and Chief Operating Officer, brings a long track record of proven success at MRM//McCann, as well as more than 25 years of marketing communications experience, to her new position.
Over the past year as Global President, Kate MacNevin has led MRM//McCann through a period of expansion from the business, reputation and creative perspectives, driving business results for clients including General Motors, GSK, United States Postal Service and Cisco.
“Kate has two things in equal measure that set her apart: An insatiable desire to learn and curiosity that challenges the norm. She inspires everyone in her orbit, and the results of that inspiration are clear in MRM//McCann’s ongoing success. Kate is a visionary, and I don’t use that word lightly. Under her watch, MRM//McCann has become an industry leader, and under her continued guidance it will no doubt continue to thrive.”Bill Kolb, Global President, Diversified Agencies, McCann Worldgroup
MacNevin first joined McCann in Toronto in 2006, was named to head the agency’s Canadian General Motors business in 2009, and then moved to Detroit in 2012, where she became Executive Director of Global Operations for Commonwealth//McCann. In 2014, she was promoted to EVP, Executive Director of Global Operations for Commonwealth//McCann, and in 2016 she transferred to become Global Chief Operating Officer for MRM//McCann. Kate was promoted to Global President of MRM//McCann in 2017.
