McCann Worldgroup’s San Francisco agency twofifteenmccann appointed Kelly Johnson as its first president, Adweek reports.
Johnson received the promotion from managing director, a position she has held at twofifteenmccann since November of 2013. She originally joined the agency as a group account director seven months earlier, following over six years as an account director with Goodby Silverstein & Partners. While with GS&P, she worked with brands including California Milk Processor Board, Comcast, Doritos, Yahoo! and Cheetos. Prior to GS&P she spent around three and a half years with CP+B Miami as a management supervisor and account supervisor, working with brands including Burger King and IKEA. That followed two years as an account supervisor and account executive at Publicis & Hal Riney, where she worked with brands such as HP, First Union National Bank and Siebel Software.
During Johnson’s tenure at twofifteenmccann, the agency has doubled in size to about 50 employees. Recently, twofifteenmccann has added such clients as Hulu, Machine Zone, Workday and Lookout, while continuing to work with founding client Xbox. In January, the agency brought on executive creative director Adam Reeves from GS&P. Its most recent work for Hulu includes a spot starring Aaron Paul.
