    BOSTON, MA, July 9, 2009 - Laura Lang, CEO of leading global digital marketing agency Digitas (www.digitas.com), announced today the appointment of Stephan Beringer as president, international of Digitas. He will report directly into Lang and will sit on her Global Executive Board.

    Responsible for overseeing all non-US markets -- EMEA, LatAm, and Asia-Pac -- Beringer will drive organic and new business growth in those regions, continue to strengthen Digitas' global footprint, and help grow the Agency's global client relationships. Existing offices under Beringer's watch include the United Kingdom, China, Singapore, India, France, Sweden and Brazil.

    A founding member of TribalDDB Worldwide credited with significantly growing the agency in its European region, and a pioneer of the interactive space, Beringer most recently served as global chief strategic officer and president of TribalDDB EMEA.

    Laura Lang said, "Stephan is one of the most dynamic, talented, high profile operators in the digital space; he has proven success scaling clients and agency networks. I'm looking forward to partnering with him on building our global Digitas footprint as well as building the very best marketing programs for our clients."

    Stephan Beringer said, "Digitas is moving at a very high pace, which has really impressed me. My international experience and understanding of business creativity and innovation is meant to add to the further development of Digitas' key position in the market, and this will be a very exciting journey I'm very much looking forward to."

    About Stephan Beringer

    A founding member of TribalDDB Worldwide, Beringer was responsible for launching the German operation in 1995 and the Austrian office in 1999. Through his role as CEO of Tribal Germany and Tribal Austria, he became a member of TribalDDB's European Board in 2001, and took over as regional lead in 2005. Beringer has been responsible for Tribal DDB in the EMEA region with its 22 offices and clients including Air France, KLM, McDonald's, Philips, Unilever and Volkswagen.
