We’ve just gotten word that Tribal DDB has made a significant creative change, adding former BBH ECD Rob Rasmussen, who lands at the agency following a few months of freelancing after being laid off from BBH NY. Rasmussen joins as CCO, the first for the agency.
The biggest ripple caused by Rasmussen’s hire: the resignation of Steve Nesle, who’s been ECD for the last four or so years. Word on the street is he heard about Rasmussen taking the gig and that was that. Some of his more recent work includes the Norelco ‘Shave Everywhere’ work.
This is the third agency in two years for Rasmussen. Before BBH he was with R/GA. He began his career at Weiden before heading out west for an in-house gig in Breckenridge and then to JWT where he helped land JetBlue.
The agency made the announcement at noon EST today during an all company meeting.
(note: Rasmussen, we’ve learned, was recruited to BBH from R/GA)
