Menno Kluin, whom you may remember from the Vitrone/Reichenthal (yes, tipsters, Ian is still working there) era at Y&R, where he last developed campaigns including the human trafficking awareness campaign for MTV, has now joined DDB New York as ECD/head of art.
Kluin’s sojourn from Manhattan to Manhattan marks the first move since CCO Matt Eastwood relocated from DDB Australia to the Big Apple and replaced Eric Silver. The latter says of his new hire, a Miami Ad School Europe grad, in a statement, “Today, Menno is one of the most talented art directors working in our industry. But, even more important than talent, Menno has drive. No one is more passionate, more committed, more driven to do great work than Menno. It’s no surprise to me that he has won every award possible, more than once. As [his previously aforementioned post], he will be an incredible addition to the DDB New York team.”
