News: Chris Schermer elected chairman of Magnet Global Agency Network
Chris Schermer, president of B2B marketing firm Schermer, has been elected chairman of the board of marketing and advertising global network Magnet.
Schermer has been a Magnet member since 2014, and Chris has served on Magnet’s board of directors since 2018, leading the network’s branding and website.
Magnet collectively boasts capitalised billings of $2 billion annually and consists of 38 independently owned agencies spanning six continents.
As board chair, he will work closely with Magnet CEO Melissa Lentz to help make their agencies individually better and the network organisationally stronger. Schermer believes Magnet membership has been very beneficial to his agency, employees and clients.
Chris said: “It’s been a breath of fresh air to have joined this group after nearly 20 years in business. As an independent owner, I was seeking peers who would both challenge and support me as a leader. They’re my partners in a sense, helping to prepare me and Schermer for what’s ahead. As the Network’s chair, I’ll get the chance to do the same for the Magnet.”
