McCann Creative Shop in San Francisco Names Its First President

Kelly Johnson promoted at twofifteenmccann

Kelly Johnson has been promoted to president at twofifteenmccann, San Francisco, a new role at the McCann Worldgroup agency following a recent surge in new business.

Johnson has been managing director at twofifteenmccann since she joined the unit three years ago. During that time, the office has added clients like Hulu, Workday, Machine Zone and Lookout to the creative and strategic responsibilities it's handled for founding client of 10 years, Xbox.

Over the past three years, the agency has doubled in size and now has over 50 employees.

Before twofifteenmccann, Johnson spent 15 years in account management, most recently at Goodby Silverstein & Partners, where she spent six years working on campaigns like "Got Milk?" and brands such as Doritos, Cheetos, Comcast, Hewlett-Packard and Yahoo.

Johnson cut her teeth during the dot-com days at San Francisco agencies Citron Haligman Bedecarre (now AKQA), and Publicis & Hal Riney before moving on to Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Miami, and clients like Ikea and Burger King.

In announcing the new role, twofifteenmccann praised Johnson's efforts to expand the agency's digital, social and mobile capabilities, which now represent half of its output.
