It didn’t take long for Y&R New York to replace Eric Johnson, who left the agency recently to head up the music department at DDB Chicago. Y&R has announced that DJ Bunny Ears’ successor is Jessica Dierauer, who has been promoted to the post of executive producer of music and creative content.
Dierauer has spent the past two years as executive content producer at Y&R’s Big Apple branch, producing and executing integrated campaigns, websites, new media applications and events for clients like LG and Office Depot. Prior to Y&R, Dierauer was a senior producer at BBH NY and has also worked as a producer at various agencies during her career including CP+B Miami, KBS+P, Martin and W+K Portland. Regarding her new post, Dierauer says in a statement, “Great music not only makes a commercial memorable, but it often adds value to a brand’s perception. This new position allows me to merge my love of music and production while also fostering and promoting the arts and culture within the agency—and also help out the music industry.”
