It’s been a fairly busy week for Deutsch LA. A few days after nabbing the Diamond Foods business, the agency announced that its new chief creative officer is Mark Hunter. Hunter in essence fills the void left by Eric Hirshberg, who quit the agency for a plum spot at Activision a few months back.
Canuck native Hunter most recently served as ECD at TBWA\London but also served as creative director at W+K Amsterdam on the flagship Nike account where he helped the agency win Clios, ANDYS and Cannes Lions. Previous to TBWA, where he worked on Twix, Adidas, Playstation and Nissan, Hunter spent two years (2007-2009) at Euro RSCG, where he was a CD and helped the agency win business from clients such as Chivas Regal Worldwide and the Conservative Party.
