While AKQA’s D.C. office lost a notable creative director recently, the digital agency’s New York office has added one as Jason McCann has moved back down from Toronto to the Big Apple to serve as CD. McCann spent the last eight years at TAXI, most recently serving as VP/co-ECD in Toronto on campaigns for Telus and MINI Canada, the latter of which earned a few Cannes Cyber Lions along the way.
As mentioned, McCann’s no stranger to the New York area as he spent two of his years at TAXI in its local office as ECD, digital on New York Life and Blue Shield of California among others. In fact, while working with his former employer, McCann served as ECD, digital for all six of TAXI’s North American agencies during his tenure. No word yet on if he’s working on specific accounts at AKQA NY, which currently works with the likes of Kraft. Update: McCann is working across accounts and officially started on Nov. 21.
