Draftfcb ECD Teddy Brown Changes Offices

Posting two Draftfcb-related items in one day is purely coincidental, we assure you. Anyhow, we’ve received confirmation that Teddy Brown, who’s spent the last eight-and-a-half years in Draft’s Orange County office, where he served as ECD across accounts including Taco Bell, is moving to the agency’s Chicago hub. Brown is joining up with Draftfcb Chicago as SVP/group creative director and will help lead the shop’s more notable accounts including USPS, Del Monte and Kraft.

During his lengthy stay in the OC, Brown helped lead creative, as noted, on all Taco Bell work, including this year’s “Live Mas” repositioning and  “Operation: Alaska” effort. From what we’ve been told, lead creative on the Yum Brands chain’s account remains in the hands of Draftfcb North American ECD, who is also leading a search for Brown’s successor. Regarding his new SVP/GCD, Draftfcb Chicago CCO Todd Tilford says, “Teddy is an outstanding creative with a truly integrated marketing philosophy, a true professional, and a great human being.”
