Elm Out at DDB Cali After Two Months at the Helm

Well, we didn’t see this coming but sources familiar with the matter confirm that after just a summer at the helm of the creative department at DDB California, Jason Elm and the agency have “mutually agreed” to part ways. Elm joined DDB Cali (consisting of L.A. and San Francisco) as chief creative officer in early June, taking over for Lisa Bennett, who stepped down from her post but was eventually appointed as EVP/creative for DDB North America.

Prior to DDB, as you may know, Elm spent 15 years at Deutsch LA, where he last served EVP/group creative director on Diamond Foods and PlayStation. We’ve been told be sources that DDB is planning to fill the position.
