CP+B LA Names Two New Creative Directors

AlexandMike

This morning brings word that Alexandra Sann and Mike Kohlbecker, who joined CP+B Los Angeles as associate CDs in 2011 and recently collaborated on the Grey Poupon account, have dropped the A’s in their acronyms to become creative directors.

In addition to managing the aforementioned mustard, the two will now also lead creative for A.1. Sauce and Applebee’s.

This promotion follows a streak during which the two drove the creative behind “some of the LA office’s most memorable and award-winning work”. That work includes both the Poupon “Spread Good Taste” campaign–which scored wins at One Show and Cannes–and 2012′s much discussed Old Navy 90210 reunion.

Prior to joining CP+B, both Sann and Kohlbecker spent time at TBWA\Chiat\Day LA, where they worked on the Visa, “Call of Duty” and Energizer accounts; Sann also worked at TBWA\Chiat\Day NY, Amalgamated and Ogilvy NY while Kohlbecker spent three years in the CP+B Boulder office before heading out west.
