We’ve received confirmation that Catherine Heath, who’s spent the last year in her native Australia serving as executive strategy director at M&C Saatchi Sydney (where she started her career over a decade ago on the planning side), is heading back to the States to head up strategy at Huge LA. It’s familiar turf for Heath, who spent over two years as a worldwide group planning director at TBWA\Chiat\Day LA. During her career, the planning vet also had a brief stint as chief strategy officer at now-defunct Boston operation Modernista! and served as VP/planning director at McCann and what was T.A.G. (now twofifteenmccann) for over two years.
While it’s been confirmed that Heath is joining Huge LA, no timetable has been set for her exact start date. We’ll keep you posted. As for the LA office itself, FYI, staff count is approximately 80 and clients include Vans, FX, National Geographic, and Tempur-Pedic.
