Sources familiar with the matter confirm that JWT New York executive creative director Richie Glickman, who had spent nearly six years at the agency, has left for a gig at Translation. Word on the street is that Glickman will assume the same position with Steve Stoute’s New York-based agency and will oversee creative on Bud Light. If you recall, Glickman was promoted to ECD at JWT in fall 2010. During his time at said agency, Glickman worked on accounts including Royal Caribbean and Kimberly-Clark brands such as Kleenex and Huggies. No word yet from the Translation camp on his start date as of yet, but we’ll let you know when we know.
Update: Sources tell us that Glickman is indeed joining Translation as group creative director, though no timeframe has been set for his arrival.
