December 2017 will mark the end of an era for one Lori Senecal as the global Chief Executive Officer of CP+B. Since she took over the leadership of the company in March 2015, Ms. Lori injected new energy into the company with much passion and intellect that moved CP+B from strength to strength. Her flexibility and entrepreneurial spirit proved vital for the company’s achievements. Advertising Age reports that one of the outstanding results of the company was CP+B’s landing of American Airlines in October 2015. It came as a lucrative move having shrugged away TM Advertising (a partner of American Airlines) from the financial prospects that they were set to gain from the partnership.

As a professional in the management, Lori Senecal holds the belief that sharing resources among the regional leaders would ensure that the offices run smoothly. Additionally, she opines that the leaders can counter their various challenges effectively with the power of innovation.
