CIA Restructures, Appoints New CEO

21 March 2001

International media planning/buying network CIA, owned by London-headquartered Tempus Group, has restructured to unify its four regions - Asia, Africa, Europe and the USA – into a single brand, CIA Worldwide.

Leading the new set-up as chief executive is CIA veteran of fifteen years, Mainardo de Nardis, currently European managing director of CIA Medianetwork. He is credited with the group’s aggressive and successful expansion across Europe.

Says group founder and executive chairman Chris Ingram: “Mainardo is a wonderful example of the culture we have built here. No one has done more than him to help build CIA's network in such a comparatively short time, so it's entirely fitting that he is CIA's first global ceo.”
