While the timing of this announce is rather peculiar considering this morning’s news, we’ve been told by the CP+B camp that the Boulder-based agency’s latest promotion is “unrelated” to now-former ECD Steve Babcock’s move to EVB. Anyways, after spending the last nine months, give or take, serving as creative director on CP+B’s Microsoft business, Dan Donovan has been promoted to executive creative director at the agency, a position that calls for him to now work across accounts.
In a statement, CP+B partner/worldwide CCO Rob Reilly had this to say about Donovan’s move up the ranks: “It was only a matter of time before somebody of Dan’s ability and leadership would rise inside our walls. He is a fantastic person and we are lucky to have him.”
Donovan joined CP+B last May after spending well over a dozen years at McCann, where he oversaw parts of the latter’s Verizon Wireless business as group creative director and worked on accounts including U.S. Army, Weight Watchers for Men and Staples during his tenure.
