US— Database marketing and analytics firm Merkle has promoted executive vice presidents Patrick Hennessy and Tim Berry to co-presidents.

Both have been with the company for 12 years, with Hennessy most recently serving as executive vice president and group leader and Berry in a matching role.

Hennessy first joined the company in a business development role, while Berry arrived as a statistician in 1997.

Merkle chairman and CEO David Williams said: “I am extremely pleased to be appointing Tim Berry and Patrick Hennessy as co-presidents, and I am completely confident in their leadership and ability to take on expanded roles. Together, we are fully committed to growing the business for many years to come.”

Last week, the company launched an MR practice headed by Christine Baskin.
