According to Adage, the new executive creative director of Omnicom Group’s GMMB in Washington, is Kirk Souder (former Publicis & Hal Riney President-Executive Creative Director). This is another boost for Washington shops with politicans’ strong spending on political and public-policy campaigns.
It’s said that GMMB is one of the top shops for Democratic candidates. Barack Obama’s campaign ad team co-head is Jim Margolis, a partner of GMMB. And GMMB has bought more than $90 million in media for Obama’s campaign since last year.
GMMB has offices in Washington, Los Angeles, Seattle and London. The agency also handles advertising and media for a number of other high-profile Democratic candidates this year. And does public-policy work that includes the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Save Darfur Coalition.
