BBDO Bumps Up Burns to MD in SF

Marc BurnssmallAfter spending the last five years in management roles in various BBDO offices, most recently serving as SVP/group account director on AT&T Wireless at the agency, Marc Burns will now fill the vacant position of managing director at BBDO San Francisco, where’s he’s been working out of for the last year. During his time on the AT&T biz, Burns helped lead teams behind efforts including the youth-focused “You’ve got a Case” starring Will Arnett and the V-Day-themed “Shout Your Love from the Mountaintop.”

Burns’s history with BBDO, though, actually dates back to 1996, when we started out in the mailroom at the agency’s Australian operations before spent the next few years as a senior account manager at Clemenger BBDO. In between his two stints within the BBDO network, Burns held account roles at Leo Burnett and worked on client side for a couple of years at Mitsubishi. Now at BBDO SF, the new MD fills out a leadership team that includes president/CEO Jim Lesser, ECD (and Goodby alum) Craig Mangan and director of strategic planning, Matt Herrmann.
