Earlier in the month we let you know that Jon Hamm would be leaving his chief creative/innovation officer position at Momentum Worldwide to move back to his hometown of London — and now we know why.
Starting in November, he will occupy the newly created role of CCO at Geometry Global in the UK just over one year after the agency came to life via the G2/Ogilvy Action merger.
Some background: Hamm assumed the global CCO role at Momentum in 2009, one year after his own agency Greenroom Digital was purchased by IPG/Momentum (clients included Sony PlayStation, Nestle, TopShop, and Twentieth Century Fox). In his own words, he moved to New York “to transform an ‘analogue’ agency” by both directing creative for clients like AmEx, Coca Cola, Nestle, Sony and by leading new divisions like Momentum Entertainment Group.
No word on the sort of work Hamm will be doing in London, though he will report directly to Geometry’s Global CEO Steve Harding.
