The info is a bit scant at this point, but sources familiar with the matter have confirmed that Nikki Baker, who’s been with DDB California–specifically the San Francisco-office–for the past two years, is leaving the agency. Baker most recently served as GCD/co-creative lead on all things ConAgra Foods (alongside CD/copywriter, Travis Parr) at DDB Cali, a role that’s called for her to oversee work on brands including Manwich, Orville Redenbacher, Bertolli to Slim Jim, PAM and Chef Boyardee (ConAgra, if you recall, consolidated creative duties at DDB last fall).
No word yet on where Baker’s headed to next but prior to DDB, the creative spent four years as an ACD/art director on McDonald’s, AT&T and Wrigley while at Leo Burnett and also held AD positions at the likes of Cramer-Krasselt and TM Advertising during her career. We’ll fill in the blanks including departure date, etc. once we find out more.
