NEW YORK, NY (December 10, 2013) – Publicis Worldwide, the largest agency brand of the Paris-based Publicis Groupe, today announced the creation of a new mega region, Publicis North America, combining two of the best performing regions in Publicis Worldwide and bringing together two top talents to lead the region. Publicis North America — comprised of Publicis USA and Publicis Canada — represents the largest Publicis region outside of France.

Andrew Bruce and Susan GianinnoSusan Gianinno has been named Chairman of the newly expanded region, and will concentrate on key global and regional clients. She will also concentrate on priority global initiatives, working in partnership with Arthur Sadoun, recently named CEO for Publicis Worldwide.

Andrew Bruce has been named CEO of Publicis North America, which includes all Publicis offices across the USA and Canada. Bruce will also take on executive responsibilities for Publicis’ largest North America operation in New York, Publicis Kaplan Thaler. Bruce will relocate to New York in January.

Sadoun stated, “Both Susan and Andrew share and embody the founding values of Publicis: passion for innovation, an unwavering commitment to our clients and true entrepreneurial spirit.  Under their respective leadership, Publicis USA and Canada have always been top performers for the network.  The new mega region will allow us to accelerate, and provide even better opportunities for our clients and people.  We see an even brighter future.”

Harvard-LogoIn addition to these focused responsibilities, Gianinno will also be spending a portion of her time this next year at Harvard University, where she has been named a 2014 Harvard Advanced Leadership Fellow, a one-year Fellowship. Gianinno will do this in addition to her Chairman role and will reassume her full responsibilities at Publicis at the end of the Fellowship. She will continue to work out of the Publicis New York offices throughout 2014.

Maurice Levy, CEO, Publicis Groupe, stated, “This is a wonderful and very prestigious appointment for Susan and for us. I am personally very proud of her and expect that she will bring even more to our people and clients during, and after, this experience. I am sure that under this new team leadership, Susan and Andrew, this new mega region will generate great work for our clients and formidable growth.”

Gianinno joined Publicis in 2002 as Chairman and CEO of Publicis Worldwide in the USA, a position she has held since that time. She has also been a member of the PWW Comex and the Publicis Groupe Strategic Leadership Team.

Gianinno stated, “I’ve known Andrew since I joined Publicis USA and am thrilled to work with him in taking the regional network to new heights. This is a very exciting time for Publicis Worldwide in North America, as we continue to expand our resources and reach for our clients, while fostering new opportunities for our people.”

Publicis North America OfficesBruce has been with Publicis since 1999, most recently as President and CEO of Publicis Worldwide in Canada. In Canada, Duncan Bruce is being elevated to the position of President. Duncan Bruce will lead Publicis Canada’s thriving Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Windsor offices, reporting in to the new North America Regional leadership. Duncan Bruce was most recently Creative Director for Publicis Canada.

Bruce stated, “I am very honored to work closely with Susan as we debut this new region, and to partner with the USA and Canada leadership teams.  Publicis USA and Canada are truly impressive entities, and now as a mega region, a formidable powerhouse.  It is very exciting to bring together our resources, talent and tools for greater shared learning.  I am confident our clients and employees will feel the positive effect right away.”

Publicis Kaplan Thaler Nabs 2 Mashies Awards for Citi Bike App

NEW YORK CITY, NY (October 11, 2013) – Advertising executives, brand marketers and press recently gathered at New York’s Altman building to celebrate the winners of Mashable’s inaugural Mashies awards, honoring the best and most creative work in digital marketing. Publicis Kaplan Thaler received two Mashies, Best Branded App and Best New Brand for their work with Citi Bike, New York City’s bike share program.

Mashies4Todd Wasserman, Mashable’s business editor noted in a recent post, “The rising prominence of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and others has led to a more complex array of media choices, but has also rebooted our traditional view of marketing. This is no longer a one-way conversation with consumers. It is a real-time dialogue in which brands can be upended by an ill-conceived tweet or a rogue YouTube posting. In such an environment, we think marketers deserve kudos for making the right calls and applying creative solutions. That’s why we’ve created The Mashies, which are designed to recognize the very best marketing in social media. The Mashies will highlight thought leadership in such categories as Best Real-Time Marketing, Best Use of Twitter, Best Branded Vine and Best Use of Facebook, among others.”

Mashies Award WinnersGuest judges combed through hundreds of submissions to select the best. Winners were selected by Mashable’s editorial team and an outside panel of industry leaders.

“The fact that Publicis Kaplan Thaler won in the best branded app category against some of the best digital agencies in the country says everything about how far this agency has come and our emerging digital expertise,” said Rob Feakins, Publicis Kaplan Thaler’s Chief Creative Officer and President.

CitiBikeAppNew York City fundamentally changed when over 300 stations and 5,000 bikes were introduced. Since New Yorkers don’t always react well to change, the entire program had to be easy to use, or Citi Bike would never truly be embraced. Publicis Kaplan Thaler created a simple way for riders to locate available bikes wherever they were in the city — The Citi Bike mobile app. At a glance, riders are able to locate nearby stations and the ratio of bikes to empty docks. The app also offers full station details, riding tips, turn-by-turn directions to anywhere in the city and a timer to help riders avoid late fees. The app also utilized a partnership with The New York Times to help riders unlock the city and discover parts of the city they’ve never seen before. Riders can also notify friends where they are headed on Citi Bike.

The highly successful app has reached over 130,000 downloads, garnered positive attention from media outlets like The Huffington Post, The New York Times and Daily News and has allowed riders to travel over 5 million miles.
