BBH NY Adds to Creative Department

A pair of associative creative directors have joined the fold at BBH’s New York office, namely Jesse Juriga and Nate Able. Juriga (left) arrives from Droga5, where he spent four years and worked as a creative on several Puma projects including “Index” and “Social” as well as campaigns for Rhapsody/Jay-Z, The New Museum Launch and the Tap Project. Now at BBH, Juriga will join up with the agency’s Google team.

Able, meanwhile, has spent pretty much his entire career on the West Coast, moving from an AD at McCann Worldgroup SF to a similar post at T.A.G., where he was part of the seemingly massive team that worked on Halo 3 “Believe.” When T.A.G. evolved into agencytwofifteen in April of last year, Able got bumped up to ACD and continued working on Microsoft/Xbox (including promos for the live action series, Bright Falls) as well as Nescafe Mexico.

While it adds more creatives, BBH NY is still without CCO but the search continues for someone to replace Kevin Roddy, who resigned last fall. Current day-to-day creative is being overseen by three ECDs, Calle Sjoenell, Jon Pearce and Mike Shackle.
