Crispin Porter + Bogusky is restructuring its London office by adding Helen James as managing director and Dan Watts as chief creative officer.
In these new roles, they will assume leadership of the 60-person London office, whose current clients include Infiniti, PayPal, Hotels.com, CoppaFeel, American Airlines, Argos, BetStars, ABInbev, Letgo, National Army Museum and Royal Society for Blind Children.
“We’ve had some ups and downs in London – that’s not unusual when you export an agency culture around the globe," stated Chuck Porter, chairman, CP+B, referencing recent leadership changes that included the departures of UK international chief executive officer Richard Pinder who parted ways with CP+B in July as well as David Buonaguidi, chief creative officer who left to start his own venture. "But doing things in new ways is part of our DNA," adds Porter.
James comes to CP+B from BBH, where she was managing partner. Watts joins CP+B from 4Creative, where as head of creative, he oversaw the brand and program advertising for Channel 4.
