Former Arnold New York chief creative officer Aaron Griffiths recently joined Facebook’s team of creative strategists, Creative Shop, as creative lead.
After leaving Arnold in March of 2014, Griffiths partnered with executive producer David Fisher to launch Griffiths Fisher, where he served as creative director. He originally partnered with John Staffen as co-CCO upon arrival at Arnold New York in May of 2012 before taking over sole responsibility for the role when Staffen assumed global creative director duties for Hershey’s and Kohler the following year.
Fisher arrived at the agency from TBWA\Chiat\Day New York, where he spent a year as creative director following nearly five and a half years as executive creative director with Ogilvy & Mather New York. Over the course of his career he has worked with brands including IBM, HP, Fanta, Kodak, Michelin, Milk-Bone and St.Ives.
Griffiths is, of course, hardly the first agency veteran recruited by the social media behemoth.
Back at the beginning of the year, Facebook brought on executive creative director Scott Larson from Razorfish and welcomed former CP+B CEO Andrew Keller, who was “phased out” during the previous August’s management restructuring at the agency, as global creative director. The new additions followed the arrival of Commonwealth//McCann global executive creative director Rick Dennis as creative strategist in August of 2015.
