Well, it looks like Jim DiPiazza is on the market again as we’ve received confirmation that the creative, who joined up with San Francisco-based Swirl as ECD last June, has parted ways with the agency. From what we’ve been told, it was a mutual decision and Swirl’s managing partner John Berg states, “We wish Jim the very best in his future endeavors and are grateful for the contributions he made to the agency.”
Prior to Swirl, DiPiazza spent 18 months at Deutsch LA, where he penned the Black Beetle Super Bowl campaign from last year and was a creative lead on the VW business. During his career, he’s also served as a senior creative at the likes of McCann Erickson and what was then Foote Cone & Belding in San Francisco. As for Swirl, sources familiar with the matter are telling us that the agency has picked a new ECD, who should be announced soon.
