Starting off 2015 on a progressive note, LPK has promoted Amy Steinmetz to vice president, operations, LPK Europe, and Michael Wintrob to vice president, strategy.
“Amy and Michael’s contributions have been invaluable to our company,” said LPK President and Chief Executive Officer Jerry Kathman. “Both have demonstrated outstanding leadership, and their thinking and vision will continue to enhance our organization’s strategic growth globally.”
Amy will work closely with Executive Creative Director David Beard to drive growth and prominence across LPK’s European offices and regions. She joined the LPK Client Services team in 2003, where she accomplished major brand assignments for Herbal Essences, Pantene, Pringles, PepsiCo, Kraft and Beam Suntory. In August 2012, she assumed the role of strategy director in London. One year later, she was named managing director of LPK Europe, and in February 2014 she moved to the Geneva office.
Michael will utilize his extensive skills and experience to give the Strategy group increased presence in LPK’s organizational matters and day-to-day operations. He joined LPK’s Client Services team in 2000, where he worked with major brands including Pantene, Swiffer and Dunkin’ Donuts. In 2011, he moved to a dedicated strategy role in order to create and deliver a vision for LPK’s own strategy capabilities, while also leading work for brands including Gillette, Kellogg’s, Wendy’s and Abbott Nutrition.
