Robinson Named President, O’Leary Chairman at T&O

los angeles—The T&O Group has promoted Dave Robinson from general manager to president. Concurrently, Steve O’Leary relinquishes his role as president to become chairman and serve as a “strategic adviser to clients.”

Robinson, who has been at the 50-person Irvine, Calif., shop for three years, said the move comes as T&O has strengthened by adding key creative talent. He also noted that last year’s win of In-N-Out Burger shows the shop can compete against much larger agencies.

“We have been on a pretty good run,” said Robinson, who was at Doner in Baltimore before T&O. “We are in a good position because we don’t have to worry about [client] conflicts, and we have attracted some top-notch talent from some big-time places.”
