Michael, Philippe and the leadership team are both collaborative and modern, which is positioning them to win in the market. In my new role, I hope to continue building this culture of growth and winning, and look forward to helping current and potential clients benefit from IPG’s unique open architecture model and roster of agencies,” Bond added.
