Campbell Mithun Loses Two Agency Leads

We’ve received confirmation that two Campbell Mithun higher-ups, Don Kvam and Robert Clifton, Jr. (right), have left the agency for different reasons.

Kvam was basically a CM lifer, having spent nearly 30 years at the agency and serving as its EVP/chief growth officer for the last three. During his tenure, he was an account leader on General Mills, Alberto Culver and Unilever. We’ve been told that he’s simply moving on to “pursue other opportunities,” though we all know that could mean anything.

Clifton Jr.’s reason for leaving on the other hand is a bit more clear as he’s now headed to Chicago to serve as EVP/ECD at Burrell Communications, where he was once a CD in the early aughts. The creative had just celebrated his fourth anniversary at Campbell Mithun, where he was an ECD on accounts including Land O’Lakes and Famous Footwear. Before joining CM, Clifton Jr. founded his own firm, Artificial, and spent several years as a senior CD at Leo Burnett.
