Costa Leaving Martin for Chiat LA

We’ve received confirmation that Martin Agency SVP/group creative director Fabio Costa will be leaving the agency for a gig at TBWA\Chiat\Day LA, though we haven’t been apprised yet of his soon-to-be title. Costa joined Martin 18 months ago and subsequently led creative on efforts for Comcast and Mentos including the “Spider Swiper” app. Prior to Martin Agency, Costa had a yearlong stint as partner/creative director at Ogilvy and worked as a CD for three years at Cutwater before that. During his time at Cutwater, Costa worked on campaigns for Ubisoft’s Assassins Creed among others.

The Martin camp tells us that they’re “sad to see Fabio leaving, but we wish him the best,” adding that he’s taking an opportunity that was “too hard to pass up.” From what we’ve been told, Costa will be joining Chiat LA in August.
