No, there isn’t a memo to be had on this go-around as we’ve yet to receive confirmation from the Grey camp on this. Yet, sources familiar with the matter have confirmed that Lisa Topol, creative director/copywriter who’s spent the last three years at TBWA\Chiat\Day New York, is leaving the agency and is perhaps assuming yet another GCD position at Grey NY.
Topol joined Chiat NY three years ago as creative director on the agency’s Kahlua and Twix accounts. Along with said clients, she also subsequently served as CD on the celeb-driven Keep a Child Alive campaign from 2010, on Wheat Thins as part of TBWA’s Being unit and did this for GE as part of its “Throttle Up” effort during Creative Week 2012. During her 15-year ad career, Topol also spent three years as creative director at JWT NY on JetBlue and Smirnoff, served as senior copywriter at W+K NY and held a similar position at Ogilvy NY early on.
