Team One, a division of Saatchi & Saatchi, has announced that Jack Mickle has been named its new chief executive officer. He takes the place of Brian Sheehan, who will be leaving to teach at Syracuse University and to obtain his doctorate. What a way to exit, right? Fabulous.
Team One is one of those agencies that has a disclaimer front and center proclaiming all work on their website to be theirs and only theirs and they will sue your pants off if you so much as sneeze at it. They are the ones responsible for the “missing h” campaign for Lexus.
Mickle, who currently serves as CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi Japan and as International Toyota Director, began his career with Saatchi & Saatchi Los Angeles in 1989. He spent some time in the Philippines in 1994 to work with Ace Saatchi & Saatchi. Subsequently, Mickle served in a number of management roles for the agency in Asia, including head of the Taiwan office.
Welcome back to the States Mickle.
