David&Goliath has found its new president and chief creative officer within its own ranks.
Founder David Angelo has stepped down as president and CCO, handing the reins to Brian Dunbar (president) and Colin Jeffery (CCO), respectively. Angelo will continue to serve as chairman.
Dunbar has served as director of client services since October 2010, while Jeffery has worked as executive creative director since 2006. In his new role as president, Dunbar will be responsible for leading the development and execution of the shop's business strategy and operations while also overseeing account management and digital departments. Jeffery will run the 50-person creative team, which includes four group creative directors—a new strategy for the agency—and overseeing the day-to-day creative process.
The promotions are due to growth at the Los Angeles-based agency, which has added 30 employees to its staff since January with 14 of those within the creative department. Angelo plans to remain involved in all of the agency's client relationships while also working on new business and developing the shop's brand.
"Both Colin and Brian are the type of entrepreneurial leaders who know what it takes to inspire and motivate people," said Angelo in a statement.
Before D&G Dunbar worked at shops like DDB and Goodby, Silverstein & Partners. As for Jeffery, he worked at shops like Arnold in Boston and Saatchi & Saatchi.
D&G works with brands like Kia, California Lottery and Universal Studios in Hollywood. A spokeswoman for the agency was not immediately available.
