While we’re on the Havas theme this morning, we might as well tell you that Frank Sanni, who has spent the last two-and-a-half years as EVP, global director of creative integration at said holding company’s Arnold Worldwide unit, has moved on to a new gig as head of planning at TAXI New York. Though Sanni (left) worked across clients and offices while at Arnold, the exec perhaps notably led creative and innovation units on the McDonald’s business at the agency, specifically with regional client groups for the fast-food giant. During his career, Sanni also worked on the strategy/planning side at the likes of Euro RSCG and TracyLocke.
We’re still checking, meanwhile, to see if Chris Edwards, most recently EVP, group creative director who also worked on McDonald’s while at Arnold, is no longer with the agency as well. Edwards has basically spent most of his 2o-year advertising career at Arnold, working primarily out of the agency’s Boston office. We’ll let you know if and when we hear more on the matter.
