Porter Novelli has named Jillian Janaczek, who was president of BCW’s New York office, CEO.

She fills the post that was held by David Bentley, who exited the Omnicom unit in June.

Bentley, who was VP-digital at McKinsey & Co., joined Porter Novelli as CEO in 2020. He succeeded Brad MacAfee, who was elected chief in 2016.

Prior to running BCW’s flagship office, Janaczek did a 21-year run at Cohn & Wolfe. She rose to the executive VP-healthcare position.

Earlier, Janaczek worked at Noonan Russo and Kovak Thomas.
