Ex-Modernista! Strategist Winds Up at Hill Holiday

Well, it looks like one of those who defected from Modernista! (which spies allege was a result of Lance Jensen “cleaning house”) last week has found new employment. Thomas O’Connell, who was with said Boston agency for ten months and served as a director of strategy, has now landed a VP/communications planning gig across the way at Hill Holliday. No word on the job status of his colleague Ross Cidlowski, who also served as a co-director of strategy while at Modernista.

The latter agency, though, does tell us that it’s bringing in a new head of planning, who is expected to start next week and we’re being told is a “very big hire.” We should hear about the official announce on this within the next day or two. Stay tuned.
