After receiving a few tips about this but no official word back, it appears to finally be so as Walt Connelly has now joined up with TBWA\Chiat\Day New York as global CD. Most recently, the creative vet served as global executive creative director at Havas Worldwide last summer on the agency’s Merck Consumer Care business, a position he just assumed last summer. During his career, Connelly has served as ECD at the likes of McCann, JWT (on on Microsoft, Kimberly-Clark, HSBC, etc.) and Ogilvy (on IBM). When we’re done tapping feet, twiddling thumbs and the like awaiting Chiat’s word on specifics, we’ll keep you posted.
