London-based adam&eveDDB has revamped its senior management team, unveiling a new senior leadership lineup as its founders prepare to move into other, as yet unannounced roles. Campaign has the exclusive today.
Managing directors Tammy Einav and Mat Goff will move into roles as joint-CEOs; executive creative director Richard Brim becomes CCO; executive interactive director Alex Hesz will now serve as CSO; and director of production Anthony Falco will now take on the chief production officer position.
Founders Jon Forsyth, David Golding, James Murphy and Ben Priest are reportedly still in discussions with Omnicom. As noted by More About Advertising, they are technically without jobs at the moment. But Campaign expects that they will take on group-level positions, along with executive creative director Ben Tollett.
The senior leadership shakeup follows last month’s news that adam&eveDDB will open a New York office in the wake of winning a significant portion of Samsung’s North American creative account after a review. Beginning January 2, healthcare agency DDB Remedy and shopper marketing agency Haygarth will also join digital agency Tribal and production company Gutenberg Networks as part of the adam&eveDDB network.
For the record, neither Samsung nor DDB have officially confirmed the New York news.
