Moran Returns to BBDO NY

By Kiran Aditham 

Nearly 11 months after his time as chief creative officer at Draftfcb New York came to an end, Darren Moran has resurfaced at his old stomping grounds of BBDO New York. Moran joins the agency as executive creative director. Moran’s first tour of duty at the agency was in the early aughts, starting as an account manager before moving to the creative side. Following his seven-year stint at BBDO, Moran moved over to Y&R, where he spent 13 years and eventually served as global creative director before joining up with Draftfcb NY in the fall of 2010.

His new boss, BBDO chairman/CCO David Lubars, says in a statement, ““Darren is a great storyteller and having him rejoin BBDO is a great story in itself. He began his career at BBDO more than 20 years ago and contributed work that helped BBDO earn agency of the year honors.  Since then, he’s gone on to create award-winning, integrated campaigns for clients like LG and Chevron.   We are thrilled for our clients that Darren has agreed to bring these skills back to BBDO.  After all, who doesn’t love a story with a happy ending?”

In new role as ECD at BBDO New York, Moran will be working across accounts.
