Malcolm McLean has joined Toronto agency Cundari as executive vice-president of strategy, insights and planning.
McLean, previously vice-president, director of strategic planning at Grey Canada, has also worked at BBDO, Cossette and Lowe Roche.
His new role will include strategic leadership and overseeing the planning group, working with Andrew Simon, the chief creative officer.
“It’s wonderful to be part of such a dynamic executive team at one of the very few remaining independent Canadian agencies,” says McLean.
