In news we missed last week, Ogilvy & Mather signed creative veteran Keith Anderson as ECD/Head of Art in its New York office.

Anderson brings a particularly extensive resume to his new role: he previously led creative for BlackBerry at AMV BBDO. Prior to his stint at that shop, Anderson spent nearly two full decades at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, rising to the level of associate partner/director of design and–according to the press release–playing a crucial role in the agency’s transition into the digital age.

Following his New York move, Anderson will handle IBM, BlackRock and new business while reporting to Ogilvy North America CCO Steve Simpson.
