| 1 Comment

Nick Paul.jpgNick Paul has been named executive vice-president, chief growth officer for DraftFCB North America. He will report to Mark Modesto, president of DraftFCB/North America. Paul most recently was executive vice-president, director of business development for DraftFCB/Chicago. In his new role, Paul will work closely with DraftFCB's New York, Chicago, west coast and Canadian agencies to more closely align efforts in identifying and pitching prospective clients.

As appropriate, Paul plans to assemble a team of talent, spanning cities, to bring together the agency's best in both category and marketing expertise as he pursues new business. A portion of his time also will be devoted to advance a new business strategy across the agency's global network. "Building teams is just one thing Nick excels at doing," said Modesto, adding "He is competitive in the best possible way." Paul joined Foote Cone & Belding in 2003, as vice-president and general manager for its 361 Sports & Event Marketing unit. Within three months, he was named head of the unit.

This guy is the most trustworthy person that you will ever meet. He tells someone something that impacts there life, and then they end up screwing the person over. To me I feel that Nick Paul should not of gotten the position he's in and be fired. Not a true employee.
