Bennett to Step Down from CCO Post at DDB West

We’ve received confirmation from an agency source that Lisa Bennett, who has spent the last 10 years at DDB and has most recently served as chief creative offier of what is now DDB West (the SF and LA offices, essentially), will be leaving her post by the end of Q1 of this year. From what we’ve been told, Bennett “…will continue to serve as chairman of the DDB North American Creative Council. In addition, she will work as EVP, North America, reporting directly to Mark O’Brien, president of DDB North America, where she will assist with new business and creative across North America and globally, as needed.”

Our DDB source adds that the Omnicom-owned agency network is planning to find a new CCO for DDB West, which has worked with clients including ConAgra, Johnson & Johnson, Wells Fargo as well as several Clorox brands. As for Bennett, the exec joined DDB’s San Francisco office as managing partner/CCO in 2003 from Leo Burnett, where she spent 15 years of her career.
