At its headquarters in New York, Wunderman welcomed Jean Middleton as associate project manager, Team Citibank. The hire is in conjunction with the Marcus Graham Project, a national network to develop more diverse thought leaders within the advertising, media and marketing industry. Middleton reports to director of delivery Gui Ambros.

Thanks to its partnership with VCU Brandcenter, Virginia Commonwealth University’s master's program for marketing communications, Wunderman snagged strategist Nadia Hyder. Hyder reports to Nelson Freitas, EVP, director of planning, and will work on brands such as Coca-Cola and United Airlines.

Team United saw more people moves, with Portia Perkins taken on as account supervisor and Keyla Echevarria as project manager.

Meanwhile, Caroline Boismery moved from Wunderman UK to Chicago, to supervise the United Airlines account on-site in the Windy City.
