    By Patrick Coffee | May 3, 2017

    Grey Worldwide today announced that it has hired a new global chief creative officer.

    The incoming CCO, John Patroulis, who most recently served as creative chairman at BBH New York, brings more than two decades of agency experience to the role in which he will lead Grey’s flagship office while working across its global client roster. Patroulis replaces Tor Myhren, who left the WPP network in December 2015 to become vp of marketing communications at Apple in Cupertino, Calif.

    “John has this rare and perfect combination of creative preciousness and steadfast business acumen,” Grey global president Michael Houston told Adweek. “We’re excited to partner with him to ensure that Grey New York is absolutely at the top of its game.”

    “I’ve admired Grey’s commitment to creativity for awhile now and am really excited to have the chance to help them create what comes next,” Patroulis said in a statement. “The people I’ve met, their passion for the work and their ambition to keep moving the company forward made me excited about the role.”

    Patroulis will report to Houston and partner with recently promoted New York CEO Debby Reiner, who described the Manhattan office as “the heart and soul of our network.”

    “It’s where our ‘Famously Effective’ work began 100 years ago,” she added.
