KBS Hired Chris Polychronopoulos as Executive Creative Director on BMW and Other Accounts

By Erik Oster 

MDC Partners agency Kirshenbaum Bond Senecal + Partners hired Chris Polychronopoulos as executive creative director working on BMW, Stanley Black & Decker and other clients.

Polychronopoulos joined the agency back in December, the same month we learned that Critical Mass won a review for a BMW web redesign assignment with KBS retaining lead creative duties.

The hire seems to reinforce the idea that KBS will continue working on the business, and it also followed the departures of executive creative directors Jon Goldberg and Marc Hartzman, the latter of whom led the digital portion of the BMW account.

An agency spokesperson declined to comment on the news.

Polychronopoulos joined the agency from AKQA New York, where he served as a creative director, working with brands including Google, Volvo, Starbucks, Verizon and Maserati. He originally joined AKQA as an associate creative director back in September of 2012 and was promoted to creative director a year and a half later.

Before joining AKQA, he spent a little over a year and a half as an ACD with POSSIBLE in Austin and New York.
