This week CP+B confirmed that Dan Fox, a veteran of the agency’s tech department, had resigned his position as Executive Vice President/Executive Creative Technology Director.
Fox officially joined Crispin when parent company MDC acquired his previous employer, Texture Media (where he was a partner), in 2008; he went on to work on campaigns like this one for Jell-O among many others. After spending nearly four years as VP/creative technology director, he received a promotion and added “executive” to his title in 2012.
Fox announced his departure on Twitter yesterday:
A huge thank you to @cpbgroup for treating me so well over the past 7 yrs and giving me the opportunity to do the best work of my career.
— Dan Fox (@danfox) June 9, 2015
An agency spokesperson says that he is no longer with CP+B effective immediately. The source who originally shared this information also claims that Fox’s departure stems, at least in part, from a larger shift within the Crispin tech department. According to this source, the agency has reduced the size of its team over the past year-plus in the interest of streamlining operations and farming more tech work out to third-party entities.
During his time at Crispin, Fox oversaw work on VW’s website and campaigns for clients including Best Buy, Old Navy and Bolthouse Farms.
We have no information on his future plans at the moment.
