Ferguson Assumes ECD Post at Tribal NY (Updated)

As promised during the time Rob Rasmussen split, Tribal DDB New York has found its second executive creative director in Chris Ferguson, who will co-manage said department in the agency’s Big Apple branch alongside fellow ECD Kinney Edwards (the lads are pictured above). Ferguson joins Tribal NY after spending four years at R/GA, where he led creative on Nike Running, Walmart and the Google Wallet launch. Ferguson kickstarted his ad career at Y&R, where he spent six years as a copywriter. During his career, Ferguson also had a lengthy stint as a creative director at TBWA\Chiat\Day and \Tequila.

Update: Ferguson officially assumes his ECD post today. Here’s a statement from Richard Guest, Tribal DDB’s president of U.S. operations: “Chris is one of the most creative, thoughtful and intelligent people that I have ever met.  I am confident that he will fit seamlessly into the Tribal DDB New York team. I have no doubt that Kinney and Chris will form a powerful team and that their collective leadership will help to evolve the agency’s business and product offering while realizing its mission of Bringing Humanity to the Digital Age.”
