Global media agency Mindshare, part of GroupM, is making a change in the leadership of its North American operation. The company named Colin Kinsella as CEO for North America, effective July 15.
Making the announcement was Mindshare Global CEO Nick Emery.
Said Emery: “Our challenge as a business is to realize media’s potential to be our client’s lead business partner. Everything begins and ends in media, and Colin’s leadership will ensure that Mindshare is a business partner above and beyond the conventional.”
Kinsella will succeed Antony Young, who will stay with Mindshare but will shift his focus to global business projects and development, the company said. Both Kinsella and Young will report to Emery.
The announcement notes: "Kinsella comes to Mindshare with more than 20 years of experience in traditional and digital advertising. Most recently he was CEO North America for Digitas, a Publicis agency. In that role, he was responsible for driving growth, innovation and collaboration across the agency’s largest region."
