Moorman Ends 24-Year Arnold Career

NEW YORK Rob Moorman, executive vice president of business development, said he is departing Arnold after 24 years.

“Call me flighty,” Moorman quipped. “Changing jobs every 24 years.”

Moorman, 50, who is leaving the New York shop on April 1, said he would likely “take a month and breath and then throw myself back into doing something.”

It was unclear if Moorman will be replaced. The senior management team, including New York president Mary Baglivo, chief marketing officer Kristen Volk, executive creative director John Staffen and executive vice president Ned Russell, also participates in new business efforts. Baglivo did not immediately return calls.

During Moorman’s four-year tenure in business development, Arnold won accounts like ING, the United States Tennis Association, Bermuda Tourism and most recently, Pfizer’s Relpax.

Moorman joined the agency, then known as James Jordan Inc., as an account supervisor on Pillsbury in January 1980. Over the years, he worked on GlaxoSmithKline, Welch Foods, Rockport and Tonka, among others.

“I love this place and there are people here who are virtually family because we’ve been together for so long,” Moorman said.
