IPG has announced senior management changes at R/GA with Global Chief Creative Officer Tiffany Rolfe being promoted to Chair and Global Chief Client Officer Robin Forbes named Interim CEO of R/GA.

Rolfe and Forbes will both report to IPG CEO Philippe Krakowsky, effective immediately.

The changes come following the announced departure of current Global Chief Executive Officer Sean Lyons, who has accepted the position of Global Capabilities Lead at Accenture Song.


 

Lyons will stay on through a transition period and support Rolfe and Forbes as they take on their additional responsibilities, the company said.

“We thank Sean for his leadership and commitment to shaping R/GA into the recognized leader it is today and wish him well going forward,” said Krakowsky.

“We’re also very much looking forward to supporting Tiffany, Robin and the leadership team at R/GA as they continue to define what the future of marketing can look like with work that creates valuable human experiences and taps into the potential of emerging technologies for a great portfolio of clients.”

Rolfe joined R/GA in 2018 as U.S. Chief Creative Officer, while Robin Forbes has held a range of leadership positions during his nine years at R/GA.


 

Rolf said, “I wish Sean all the best in his next opportunity and I’m proud of what we have built over the last five years—during a time of tremendous change for the industry and the world.”
