Energy BBDO Picks up Noel Haan

By Matt Van Hoven 

Update: Haan is not replacing Braun &#151 he’s an additional SVP GCD.

Fifteen year advertising veteran Noel Haan is making the move from Cramer Krasselt (where he was senior vp, group creative director), Chicago to Energy BBDO, where he’ll play SVP GCD. OMG!

This is CCO Dan Fietsam’s first hire since taking over the agency’s creative &#151 and it looks like he’s shaking things up. We haven’t heard who else he’s bringing in, but Greg Braun used to seat the SVP GCD desk. Wonder what he’s doing now?

Accounts he’s worked on over the years include: Porsche, AirTran Airways, Corona, Negro Modelo, Heinz, Hyatt, Dex, Altoids, Rebook (did they mean Reebok?), Dewars, Starbucks, and Coca-Cola.

Yeah, this came to us in a release. But did you notice which agency hired him? Energy BBDO! They’re in Chicago, which means there’s an opening at C&#151K. Now go, submit your resumes!
