Allison+Partners announced several changes to its management structure, expanding the global remit of three partners, while also increasing the responsibilities of a number of partners in the U.S.
Jonathan Heit has been elevated from president of the Americas to global president, with added responsibilities overseeing Allison+Partners’ booming Asia business to his existing focus on the U.S. and Latin America. In addition, Matthew Della Croce and Cathy Planchard have been promoted to global president. Planchard and Della Croce are tasked with oversight of the global operations of Allison+Partners’ All Told and Europe + Corporate divisions, respectively. The three will continue to report into Scott Allison, agency co-founder, global chairman and CEO.
“As the agency continues to scale globally, we felt it was the right time to evolve the leadership structure to better serve our clients and our teams.” said Scott Allison. “Jonathan, Cathy and Matthew will continue to focus on opportunities to grow our worldwide footprint and expand our capabilities for both existing and new clients.”
As part of this new structure, Anne Colaiacovo is promoted to president of North America, accountable for the financial performance, new business and management of the agency’s 13 U.S. offices. Her promotion reflects the numerous contributions she has made in her more than 10 years with the agency, most recently serving as chair of the Eastern region and co-chair of the agency’s consumer marketing practice.
“Since her first day on the job, Anne has been an incredibly adept business builder and true beacon of our culture, helping to define and refine it along the way,” said Heit. “Her ability to spot and nurture talent into great teams is matched only by her passion for great work, strong creative and provocative ideas.”
Joining her in an increased leadership role in the U.S. are Zach Colvin, who has added head of business development and client growth to his role as chair, California; Jeremy Rosenberg, elevated to managing director, All Told, North America and Tom Smith, who has been named managing director, Corporate, North America. Each has increased responsibility and oversight of business development and day-to-day operations in the agency’s largest market.
