It’s been a few months since we’ve heard from Cramer-Krasselt Chicago, so perhaps it’s worth checking in, especially considering the agency is making some changes to its creative leadership. C-K has hired one Derek Green as the new ECD of its Windy City HQ. Green joins from Saatchi & Saatchi Switzerland, where he served as chief creative officer for the last three years and was responsible for clients ranging from Orange to Novartis (he picked up a Gold Lion at Cannes last year for work on the latter).
Prior to his top creative post at Saatchi, Green worked as a a copywriter at the Sydney offices of both JWT and Leo Burnett during his career. It’ll be a while, though, before Green makes the transition from Geneva to Chicago as he won’t officially be taking the ECD reins at C-K until August. When he arrives, he’ll be taking over for Kevin Flatt, who joined C-K two years ago and will shift to the newly created position of SVP, digital and design director at the agency.
