Big Spaceship Has Found Its First Chief Creative Officer

Cedric Devitt joins from MRY

Big Spaceship has reached within MRY and found its first chief creative officer, Cedric Devitt. 

Devitt will join the nearly 90-person Brooklyn office of Big Spaceship on March 9. He will report to founder and CEO Michael Lebowitz, who noted that the shop has added Devitt's role following significant growth.

"We've seen a lot of growth and a lot more demand from our clients for taking more of a central leadership role in their brands and their needs," said Lebowitz. "We needed someone who could help us level up in that regard and at the same time pay proper respect to the culture and the organizational structure that we've built over 15 years."  

Devitt has been charged with growing and sharpening the agency's core work in marketing communications and social, as well as leading creative for the agency. 

"As digital, social, content and mobile are all beginning to merge, it's a perfect time to join an agency like Big Spaceship where they can quickly pivot to the demands and needs of clients," said Devitt. 

The creative shop, which in 2014 added its first international office in Seoul, South Korea, has increased its revenue by 20 percent in the past year, adding clients like Samsung, Nestle, Purina, Google Play and Organic Valley. 

Before joining Big Spaceship, Devitt worked as CCO of MRY, in addition to holding various creative leadership roles for LBi before it was acquired by MRY. He has worked with clients like Coca-Cola, Sony and AT&T.
