First on AgencySpy: Tom Christmann Lands at JWT NY, First of Many High Level CDs

Tom Christmann, former ECD from Cliff Freeman, is one of a half dozen high level CDs JWT New York is adding to its bench over the next few weeks, confirmed sources close to the matter.

Whether Christmann would find another gig was never a question, according to people who worked with him in previous agencies. It was just a question of where. According to my sources, Christmann is just one of 6 (or so) creatives who are considered high level that JWT is bringing on &#151 if there is a special task in mind for this yet-to-be-named team we aren’t sure. The CDs are all considered “very high level.”

Christmann will report to Walt Connelly on the Microsoft account. More on this later today.

Update 1: Sources tell us Laura Fegley and Josh Kilmer-Purcell are among the top level CDs being brought on. “Laura worked with Josh at Merkley years ago, then Tom (Christmann) worked with Josh at Kirshenbaum after that,” said a source.
