NEW YORK: Veteran Grey Global Group executive Neil Kreisberg (62) has retired after a forty-year career with the WPP-owned agency. His responsibilities as group evp/executive managing director embraced the shop's Procter & Gamble business, valued at around $1 billion (€769m; £512m) annually.

Tamara Ingram, currently ceo of Grey UK, will take on Kreisberg's P&G duties.

Lauded Grey Global ceo Jim Heekin: "A key reason for Neil's success is his passion for team building. He attracted, nurtured, trained and inspired dozens of Grey's best and brightest over two decades."
