Ogilvy New York Parts Ways with Chief Production Officer Matt Bonin

By Erik Oster 

Chief Production Officer Matt Bonin has left Ogilvy & Mather New York.

Matt has left Ogilvy and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors,” an agency spokesperson said. It is unclear at this time where Bonin will be heading, but we expect to hear more about this story soon.

As you may recall, we wrote back in March of 2015 that Bonin was planning to leave the agency after three years in the position, with Bonin saying that he “received an amazing offer from another company and… decided to leave.” Several days later, however, Ogilvy & Mather North American CCO Steve Simpson sent an internal memo to employees explaining that the agency had convinced Bonin to stay


Now it would appear that Bonin has once again decided to leave Ogilvy & Mather New York, presumably for another (or the same?) offer somewhere else.

Bonin has served as Ogilvy New York’s Chief Production Officer, a role the agency created specifically for him, since arriving in February of 2012, following a year as executive director of integration at TBWA\Chiat\Day L.A. Before TBWA he spent a year as managing director of integrated production at production studio Trailer Park, followed by a ten-month stint as an executive producer for Tool of North America. Prior to that he spent four years as a senior producer with Y&R, followed by five as vice president, integrated head of video with CP+B.
