The article profiles Gary Von Kennel, the new chief executive of Rapp Collins Worldwide. His reputation for ruthlessness is most likely to have been built during his previous role as the chief executive and chairman of Rapp Collins Worldwide's North American operations. Outside of Omnicom Corp., however, little is known about him--a Google search returns few results for a man in charge of a network with some $470 million in revenue. Von Kennel's background is in promotional marketing. He began as a client, at companies including Gillette Co. and Miller Brewing Co.
