Just six months after he rejoined Carmichael Lynch, Chief Strategy Officer Marcus Fischer is being promoted to president, according to a news release.
He replaces Doug Spong who will stay with the Minneapolis-based advertising agency as a managing partner and president of its public relations division, Carmichael Lynch Spong.
"Marcus and Doug have quickly built a strong, purposeful partnership," Carmichael Lynch CEO Mike Lescarbeau said in a statement. "We look forward to their leadership as we continue to grow our advertising and public relations brands collaboratively."
The Business Journal notes Fischer worked at Carmichael Lynch from 2003 to 2008. Before rejoining the company in August, he spent four years at space150 in Minneapolis, last serving as CEO.
Carmichael Lynch is owned by New York-based advertising and media conglomerate Interpublic Group.
