[Birmingham, MI] – Longtime agency partner Scott Werner takes the reins this week as Managing Partner at Brogan & Partners Convergence Marketing, part of the award-winning firm's practice of rotating the key position among top management.
Werner takes over for Maria Marcotte who served as managing partner over the last year. Marcotte will continue her role as agency partner and chief operating officer.
Werner is now responsible for leading day-to-day operations and implementing strategy set forth by the Board of Directors, with support from the agency's partners. He'll report to the chairman on a daily basis and the Board of Directors quarterly.
"Scott started as an unpaid intern fresh out of college 16 years ago and we have all watched his entrepreneurial flair ignite over the years," said Marcie Brogan, CEO of Brogan & Partners. "I am happy we persuaded Scott to take a well-deserved turn in the managing partner hot seat."
A proud alumnus of Eastern Michigan University, Werner joined Brogan & Partners in 1992 and quickly rose through the ranks, earning a promotion to agency partner in 1998.
"I'm excited about the next challenge," said Werner. "We have one of the most strategic and creative marketing teams anywhere. I look forward to helping our business grow and continuing to provide unmatched marketing results that help our clients grow their businesses too."
Scott lives in Birmingham with his wife, 2 sons and dog Lucy.
