Five-ish questions in Cannes: Richard Ting, R/GA, CXO & CCO US

Join Weather Edwards and Campaign US for spicy daily encounters with festival-goers.

Most of you know him as the humble managing director of business development at R/GA.

But meet Dave Edwards' slightly more exotic alter ego, Weather Edwards.

He’s partnered with Campaign US to bring you five-ish not-so-important questions from Cannes-goers every day.

While Weather Edwards was tasked with finding new faces from different shops quaffing the pink stuff all over town, he has -- regrettably -- found yet another R/GA staffer to feature today. He has been reprimanded and is aware that his Campaign privileges are now at stake. We promise this is the last R/GA-er.

Please welcome Richard Ting, CXO and CCO US.
