Lipman Hearne Introduces Its New CEO: Minesh Parikh

Chicago marketing agency’s long-time CEO Rob Moore will remain with the agency

Marketing agency Lipman Hearne has selected Minesh Parikh as its new CEO, effective July 1. Current CEO Rob Moore, who has led the agency for over a decade, will be stepping down from his leadership role, but will remain with the agency as Senior Consultant and CEO Emeritus.

“Our agency has had great success over the past few years, and we’ve assembled an exceptionally strong and collaborative management team,” says Moore. “Now is the ideal time for me to transition my CEO responsibilities to a new leader capable of positioning the agency for continued growth and success. Minesh is the perfect person to take on this important job.”


Parikh, a 15-year member of the Lipman Hearne team, has most recently been Senior Vice President of Consulting & Account Management. During his tenure with the agency he has taken on a number of roles, including responsibilities in project management, media, and most recently account management.

“I’m both excited and honored to have been selected for this role,” says Parikh. “Lipman Hearne has always sought to provide wide, visionary solutions to our clients. In my new job I will be working to help everyone in our agency continue creating those kinds of solutions by focusing on innovative thinking and differentiated approaches.”

“The ways that customers and stakeholders interact with our clients’ brands are constantly changing,” says Parikh. “I want our agency to be an even stronger partner to our clients in addressing this, by bringing more insights into the process. We can help our clients better understand their customers’ journeys, provide greater clarity in defining their brands, and develop exciting creative solutions that build affinity and address client marketing challenges.”


Transitioning CEO Rob Moore will continue at Lipman Hearne as a senior consultant, working with several of the agency’s clients and providing mentorship to new CEO Parikh. Moore is a 25+ year member of the Lipman Hearne team, and is a well-respected national leader in the higher education business sector.
