Ahh, we love it when we’re right. A month after we reported that Pierre Lipton quit BBDO and was possibly headed to AKQA, the latter agency stopped being silent and finally announced that he has indeed joined its San Francisco office as a GCD on the Xbox account.

While at BBDO, Lipton served as SVP/CD and worked on campaigns for HBO’s True Blood and Big Love as well as AT&T among others. Prior to that, he was an ACD at Chiat where he worked on Absolut and helped launch the “In An Absolut World” tagline. At AKQA, he will report to CCO Rei Inamoto.
