Integrated agency G2 UK has appointed former RMG Connect chief executive Tim Hipperson as UK group CEO.


Hipperson’s appointment marks his return to WPP Group after he left RMG Connect in 2009, following its merger into JWT, an initiative successfully completed under his leadership.

Hipperson takes up his appointment at G2 UK with immediate effect and his remit includes overseeing operating units G2 Branding and Design, and G2 Data Dynamics.

He reports to G2 EMEA chief operating officer Pietro Leone.
