Following the surprise departure last month of Impiric’s global chairman and ceo Jay Bingle [WAMN: 15-Dec-00] , his still-warm seat is to be occupied by Daniel R Morel, former ceo of Euro RSCG Worldwide's marketing services shop, The Sales Machine.

Morel is charged with making “Impiric the best stand-alone company possible,” while at the same time implementing Y&R’s corporate mantra, ‘best alone, better together’ by forging closer working relationships with sibling divisions.

New York-based Morel will report to Y&R’s ceo Mike Dolan.
