Roughly a month after William Morris vet Lewis Henderson said he was leaving the talent agency, the former digital media head has a new job: CEO of agency Davie Brown Entertainment, part of The Marketing Arm and Omnicom Group. Henderson succeeds James Davie, who co-founded the agency in 1985 and will retire later this year. Davie Brown is bringing on Henderson to add digital marketing and expand entertainment strategy. Henderson, who was with WMA for nearly 20 years years, moved from the agency's consulting practice to head William Morris Digital when it was launched in 2006.
Davie Brown already has added two senior execs this year: Rob Souriall as SVP for music and gaming from VP for strategic marketing and promotions at Disney (NYSE: DIS) Music Group's Hollywood Records, and Chalcea Park, managing director for talent and licensing, from EVP at Platinum Rye Entertainment.
