Team Detroit Veteran Leaves Embark Digital

By Patrick Coffee 

embark digitalA source tells us that Doug Wojciechowski, who spent well over a decade working on the Ford and Lincoln accounts for JWT and Team One, has left his executive creative director position at Detroit’s Embark Digital.

Embark, which is the digital wing of communications agency Duffey Petrosky, only announced Wojciechowski’s hiring last October — though it would seem that he worked with the agency for some time before that date after leaving Team Detroit in January of 2014.

Wojciechowski has a fairly extensive agency history: he was senior art director on the Ford account at JWT Detroit for more than six years before it became Team Detroit in 2007, and he was promoted to the VP/creative director position on the UX side in 2011. (He’s also a professional photographer.)

It’s not clear at the moment why Wojciechowski left or whether Embark is searching for a replacement. The agency — which lists Chrysler, the Pistons, and several area healthcare organizations among its clients — has not responded to our request for comment.

In barely related news, Team Detroit’s most memorable recent campaigns that did not star Matthew McConaughey involved a Ford Mustang hidden camera “speed dating” stunt and a Christmas campaign for the Ford Fusion.
