After a six-and-a-half year stint that dates back to the FCBi days, Tim Queenan is parting ways with Draftfcb New York. The agency confirms what tipsters were telling us, that Queenan is leaving for a gig at Google. The Draft folks wouldn’t comment on what position Queenan is exactly taking at the Mountain View, CA-based giant, but from what we hear, he’s joining up with its Creative Lab as an in-house planner.
Queenan, whose last day at Draftfcb is actually today according to sources, spent the last few years as SVP, executive director, digital experience planning (phew) at the agency’s Big Apple branch and before that, served as VP, management director of digital business strategy when it was FCBi. His departure follows those of fellow Draft NY vets Auge Reichenberg and Nanci Silverman, who just recently left for positions at Rosetta and Grey, respectively.
Update: Queenan confirms that he’s actually joining as director of strategy within Google Creative Lab.
