In her new role, Gorman is responsible for leading business growth and overseeing key clients such as Mark’s, Mastercard, Wendy’s and WIND Mobile, said Doug Turney, agency president and CEO.

“Robyn is a natural leader. When she first joined our team, it was readily apparent she would excel in our integrated and collaborative work environment, and I am thrilled to see her exceed the expectations of her colleagues and clients across the country,” said Turney, in a statement.
