Global creative network the Stink Group has appointed Dan Forman as its new chief operating officer.

In the position, Forman will drive global growth and commercial strategy across Stink Films and Stink Studios, with the objective of expanding both companies’ offerings to more global clients.

Forman, who leaves WPP, will work closely with leads across both companies to oversee key commercial and operational aspects of the Stink Group’s more than 15 offices.

He brings more 20 years of industry experience to Stink.

Over the course of his career, Forman has served as the commercial director for BBH London, the CFO for Saatchi & Saatchi Fallon UK & Nordics Group, the global commercial director for Geometry Global and, most recently, as the SVP of global client operations for WPP, where he was responsible for commercial delivery across the network’s major clients.

“Without question, the last six years have been the most rewarding, challenging and fulfilling of my professional life and I’m grateful and proud to have had this experience with WPP,” Forman said.

“I’m delighted to be joining the Stink family, a company that I’ve admired for many years.  I’m honoured to now be a part of it and to have a major role in securing its future.

“Within the world that we’re living in; the changing media landscape that we’re experiencing, I believe Stink is perfectly positioned to be more relevant and able to deliver its unique value to clients. I can’t wait to be a part of the journey and to start this exciting new chapter together.”

Stink president Daniel Bergmann said: “It’s exciting to have Dan join us. His personality and experience is exactly what Stink needs at this stage. Dan is wise and friendly and open to tackling new challenges. We’re all very much looking forward to our collaboration.”

Stink Studios’ chief executive, Mark Pytlik, added: “Dan’s impressive experience ranges across the commercial, financial and operational aspects of some of the most storied agencies on the planet.

“His knowledge, combined with Stink Studios’ world class creative capabilities, makes for a potent combination, and I’m thrilled to welcome him to our team.”

Forman’s appointment to the Stink Group began on 4 May 2021. He will be based out of the London office.
