WPP had won the hospitality account in December 2019 with Jaime Prieto as WPP’s global client leader of Team Intercontinental Hotel Groups.
“We have covered Drew’s responsibilities with internal leaders but we also will be announcing some exciting new hires in the coming weeks,” said a Ketchum representative. “Drew was an important member of the Ketchum community for many years, and we wish him the very best in this next chapter.”
