Carter Murray named President and CEO of Y&R Advertising North America

23 September, 2011

Moves to Y&R from Publicis Worldwide

NEW YORK — David Sable, Chief Executive Officer of Y&R announced today that Carter Murray has been appointed President and Chief Executive Officer of Y&R Advertising’s North America operations. Starting his new position at the end of October, Murray will be based in New York and will be responsible for overseeing all of Y&R Advertising’s North America offices, including pursuing new business in the region.

Carter joins Y&R Advertising from Publicis Worldwide in Paris, where he worked for over four years, most recently as Chief Marketing Officer and Worldwide Account Director, in addition to being an Executive Committee member. As the global leader for their Nestle business, Carter drove double-digit growth across the account’s 80 markets and, not surprisingly, off-the-chart client satisfaction results.

“We’re thrilled to bring Carter on board to lead our exciting North America team. We’ve made great strides this past year and brought in some amazing talent — Bob Winter, Joe Kayser, Doug Sweeny and Jim Elliott — people who both fit our DNA and advance our culture,” said David Sable. “I know Carter will build on the momentum. Everything about him — from his global client experience to his operational successes to his new business track record — makes him the perfect choice for the role and for Y&R.”

“I’m delighted to join the Y&R family. Y&R Advertising’s North America network has made great progress this past year. All the ingredients are there — Great people and a lot of fantastic new talent that came on board this year, a great roster of clients, and some really fine and innovative work. It’s an exciting time to join,” said Murray.

Prior to Publicis, Carter spent nine years at Leo Burnett, running accounts and new business, starting with his first role in their mothership Chicago office and then moving to Germany, London and Paris, where he ultimately was the regional new business director for EMEA. Carter received his Bachelor of Arts from Duke University.
