Following today's departure of chief creative officer Aaron Griffiths, the New York office of Arnold will no longer have a CCO.
The New York team will be lead by global creative director John Staffen, evp and ecd Gary Scheiner and managing director and creative director Kate Murphy. Creative teams in New York and Boston will have a more cohesive structure, according to sources.
Griffiths was appointed co-CCO in the spring of 2012 with John Staffen, who transitioned out of the co-CCO role in the winter of 2013 when he was promoted to global creative director.
Griffiths has partnered with fellow Arnold alum David Fisher, who served as the director of integrated production at the Havas agency until recently. Fisher and Griffiths have formed what they are calling Aaron and David. The smaller structure will allow them to focus on the work.
