Agency network DDB announced today that Ari Weiss, its former North American chief creative officer, has been promoted to lead the global network.

He succeeds Amir Kassaei, who stepped down from the global CCO role in January after nine years to focus on C14TORCE, a Barcelona-based division of DDB centered on work for the auto brand Seat.

In addition to Weiss’s promotion, DDB has hired Britt Nolan, former U.S. chief creative officer at Leo Burnett, to fill DDB’s North American CCO role.

“As the global network that bears Bill Bernbach’s name, it’s critical that we have leaders who constantly champion, provoke and expand creativity in all its forms, potential and impact.”
