ArnoldNYC Co-CCO Staffen Assumes Global CD Role

It looks like ArnoldNYC co-chief creative officer Aaron Griffiths will be flying solo moving forward as we’ve received confirmation that his partner-in-crime at the agency, co-CCO John Staffen (pictured), has been promoted to global creative director on the Hershey’s and Kohler accounts. Griffiths partnered up with Staffen (who remains based in NYC) last May after spending just over a year as a creative director at TBWA\Chiat\Day New York on Vonage and Michelin among other accounts.

Staffen, meanwhile, has spent nearly a decade at ArnoldNYC, which he joined as chief creative officer in early 2004 after logging nearly twenty years as an art director-turned-creative director at DDB NY, where he worked with clients including the New York Lottery.
