By Erik Oster 


Minneapolis-based agency Campbell Mithun has announced the hiring of industry veteran David Carter, formerly of BBDO New York,  as its new chief creative officer.

Carter is one of the most highly awarded creatives in advertising today, with two of the One Show’s Top Ten Campaigns of the decade with BMW Films and HBO Voyeur. He’s worked with clients including BMW, Amazon, Starbucks, HBO, AT&T, Chrysler, Jeep, Pepsi and Glenlivet Whisky.

“David’s body of work over the years is testament to his belief in platform creativity—drawing upon data, technology and emerging media to deliver brand stories,” said Campbell Mithun CEO Rob Buchner.

Carter was equally optimistic about the move, stating, “You only have to read a headline or two each day to see how quickly the agency and media worlds are changing. The combination of Campbell Mithun’s legacy of big, brand ideas and its commitment to new media thinking and strategy is the perfect fit for me. I couldn’t be more excited.” Carter reported for duty at Campbell Mithun today, representing the agency’s “latest investment in talent since Rob Buchner took the helm in mid-2013.” Other recent moves at Campbell Mithun include Steve Adrndt’s promotion to COO and the hiring of Denis Budniewski as director of account leadership and growth back in September.
