Group Marketing Director Emily Brooks Leaves Arnold for MullenLowe Boston

By Erik Oster 

Emily Brooks is leaving her position as SVP/group marketing director with Arnold Worldwide Boston for an unspecified account management role at MullenLowe Boston.

Brooks has held the position with Arnold for the past two years while focusing on the agency’s global Jack Daniel’s business. That stint followed nearly a year and a half spent as VP/marketing director on the same account.

An Arnold spokesperson said that Brooks’ departure does not reflect any changes in the Jack Daniel’s business and that managing director Paul Nelson will continue running the account moving forward. The agency wishes Brooks the best in her new role but did not specify whether it plans to find a replacement to fill her position.


Before joining Arnold in 2013, Brooks spent two years as an account director with Droga5, focusing on Prudential and UNICEF Tap Project. That followed a year with Publicis as VP/management supervisor working on Citibank and eight months as brand manager for Spirits Marque One. Before that she spent five years with KBS as an account director working on Diageo Reserve Brands (Don Julio Tequila, Bulleit Bourbon, Classic Malts of Scotland, Ciroc Vodka), Hennessy Cognac, Starz Entertainment and Mohegan Sun casino. Prior to that she spent three years as an account executive with Ogilvy & Mather, working on AT&T and American Express.
