OgilvyOne Hires N.Y., S.F. Creative Directors

NEW YORK WPP Group’s OgilvyOne said it has hired new creative directors in its New York and San Francisco offices.

David Shavrick, 41, has joined OgilvyOne in New York as creative director. He had 10-year stint at Modem Media, where he was executive creative director. Shavrick will lead creative work for OgilvyOne’s Kodak, Motorola and Sprite accounts.

Aaron Griffiths, 33, was hired as creative director at OgilvyOne in San Francisco. He arrived from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, where he was a senior writer and worked on the agency’s Hewlett-Packard and Saturn accounts. He will lead OgilvyOne’s interactive work on its Yahoo account. OgilvyOne recently hired Arthur Ceria to head its San Francisco creative department.

OgilvyOne opened a San Francisco office in November 2004, after Yahoo hired it to handle interactive creative duties.

“We are committed to attracting the brightest creative lights in the interactive arena,” Jan Leth, OgilvyOne co-executive chief creative director, said in a statement. “We’ve got one of the most highly awarded creative departments in the industry and with these new talents … we will be able to continue to deliver the innovative, breakthrough work that helps build our client’s brands in the interactive space.”
