After spending the last four years at Saatchi & Saatchi X and serving as VP/executive creative director out of the agency’s Chicago office since last summer, Joanna Arscott is moving on. From what we’ve been told, the creative exec is leaving for “personal reasons.” Arscott initially joined the shopper marketing-focused Saatchi & Saatchi X as a GCD, leading creative on P&G business for Walmart both in North America and internationally before being named VP/ECD for Chicago. Prior to Saatchi & Saatchi X, the London native spent three years as VP/ECD at Momentum Atlanta. During her career, Arscott worked in her native UK at the likes of Saatchi London, Ogilvy and 141 Worldwide.
From what we’ve been told, she will continue with Saatchi X through September. The agency tells us, “She has been a huge contributor and we wish her well.”
