Creative Director Kate McCagg Joins Havas New York

Kate McCaggThis morning we confirmed that Kate McCagg, most recently creative director at Razorfish, has left Portland for New York and a CD spot on the Havas Worldwide roster.

An agency spokesperson confirmed that McCagg started at Havas last week and that she is “partnering with Monica Escobar to lead Ritz (Mondelez) and working across other accounts as well.”

The official statement from Havas CCO Darren Moran:

“Kate is a thoroughly modern creative director. She’s a thinker and a maker. A writer and a lover of design. A humanist and a tech geek. Half of her career has been spent at ‘traditional’ shops, half at a digital agency. So she can do a lot and do it well, which makes Havas the perfect place for Kate. We’re thrilled she’s joined us.”
