The Chicago office of DDB is losing its president and CEO but filling the role with a familiar face.

Peter McGuinness, head of the office since 2011, is moving back to New York to become chief marketing and brand officer at Chobani. The move reunites him with a former client from his days as CEO of Gotham in New York. He starts in two weeks.

Assuming the top job at DDB, Chicago, is Paul Gunning, a DDB veteran who most recently was global CEO of digital unit Tribal DDB and global chief digital officer at DDB.
