Mediaedge: CIA – the media network spawned from WPP Group's takeover of Tempus Group – has appointed Tom Sassos chairman of its North American operations.

Sassos was the US ceo of Tempus's CIA Medianetwork, the agency that merged with WPP's The Media Edge to form the new group. Partnering him will be ex-TME chief executive Steven Lanzano, who moves to the same post at the combined entity.
