Richard Nordstrom has been named to succeed Joe Torre as global chief executive of McCann Healthcare Worldwide, a division of Interpublic Group's McCann Worldgroup. Torre will continue with McCann Healthcare Worldwide as chairman.
"I will be taking on a role focusing more on relationships and less on numbers," Torre said.
Nordstrom most recently was president of the New York office of Corbett Accel.
Scott Cotherman, chief executive of Corbett Accel, has stepped in as acting president of the New York office on an interim basis.
Nordstrom joined the Chicago-based Corbett Healthcare Group in 1998 as senior vice president, director of client services.
In early 2004, Omnicom divisions Corbett and Accel merged to form Corbett Accel. Accounts under Nordstrom's supervision there were Merck, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Sanofi-Synthelabo and Shire Pharmaceuticals.
Nordstrom is expected to begin his new role Jan. 3.
