It’s been some time since we’ve covered staffing news at JWT New York, but the agency has now sent word out that it’s welcomed some senior staffers, both in creative and account management. On the creative front, toplining the new hire list is Robert Frost (he must have fun with that), a 13-year ad vet who’s made the rounds in senior creative roles at the likes of Y&R and TBWA Chiat\Day but spent the majority of his career at McCann.
During his last stint at said agency, which lasted six years, Frost served as SVP/GCD on MasterCard among other accounts. Now at JWT, he will served as executive creative director on the Vonage account, which the agency won at the beginning of the year. Along with Frost, JWT NY has also brought on RAPP alum Bryan Gaffin to serve as GCD on its healthcare accounts including Johnson & Johnson and Bristol-Myers Squibb as well as Kimberly Samskin-Barger, former creative lead on AmEx OPEN at Digitas, as a CD.
On the account side, meanwhile, Sherri Chambers, who most recently served as group brand director on Carl’s Jr. and Hardees at 72andSunny, joins JWT NY as global business director a yet-to-be-named “new account.” Hmm.
