An executive promotion this month triggered leadership changes within Omnicom’s media branches. Daryl Simm, the previous leader of Omnicom Media Group (know as OMG) was promoted to president and chief operating officer of OmnicomGroup. The change is an indication that Simm might be next to lead Omnicom Group when the current CEO, 69-year-old John Wren, retires.

The leadership moves put a spotlight on media executives at a time when the holding company’s media networks are thriving and continuing to evolve after a massive strategy pivot that began in 2017. Now, with Florian Adamski at the helm of Omnicom Media Group and George Manas as CEO of OMD, more integration is on the horizon as the networks seek flexible solutions that clients can scale up or down quickly, depending on need.

Even when they are a single agency pitch, we are still drawing on the best of Omnicom to build the right solution for their client needs." - George Manas
