New president, CEO at DentsuBos
Montreal-based DentsuBos will promote Stephen Kiely to the position of president and CEO next month. Outgoing president and CEO Claude Carrier will retire on June 24. Kiely, who joined Dentsu Canada in 2003, was most recently an executive vice-president. In this position, he was responsible for business development, client relations and talent management, as well as planning and strategy.
"Today it is incredibly important for myself and the group to celebrate Claude's achievements and immense contribution to Dentsu Aegis' success," said Annette Warring, CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network Canada. "He will step down with all our recognition, appreciation and admiration. It is also a day to welcome Stephen in the new role. Stephen is an accomplished leader who lives our values and culture, and who has demonstrated his readiness to drive the business forward to even greater heights."
