Project: WorldWide, the independent, employee-owned network filled with engineers, craftsmen and artists, is adding a storyteller to its mix.
Veteran industry journalist Jennifer Comiteau, who most recently spearheaded North American communications at global ad agency FCB (Foote, Cone & Belding), joined the network today as Executive Director of Corporate Communications, a new position. Comiteau will build the communications discipline internally for the growing network that currently has 11 agencies spread across 45 worldwide locations.
“Project is an unconventional network at a time when CMOs are seeking fresh, modern approaches. Our agencies are enjoying tremendous growth, continuing to attract top-tier talent, and adding high-growth clients,” said Brian Martin, SVP, marketing and communications. “As we amp up for 2016, the time is right to bring in someone with Jennifer’s skills and relationships to help shape the way we tell our story to further ignite our position in the marketplace.”
Comiteau is a skilled writer who easily segued from journalism into an agency content-creation role. She joined FCB in February of 2011 after holding several senior roles at Adweek magazine during her 17-year tenure, including director of content/custom media, news editor, features editor and special issues editor. Prior to joining Adweek in 1994, Comiteau served as a reporter and editor at newspapers in Northern Virginia after graduating from The George Washington University in 1989.
“I am excited to work with such a great group of strategic, creative and digital thinkers adept at solving client business problems and creating buzzworthy marketing initiatives that connect brands with consumers in innovative ways,” said Comiteau, who will report to Martin. “I’m optimistic that my editorial acumen will help the network achieve its ambitions.”view more - Hires, Wins & Business
