Golden, Sheehan Head from AKQA to W+K

Well, it looks like our tipsters over the weekend were accurate as we’ve received confirmation that Ginny Golden and Christine Miller-Sheehan have joined Wieden+Kennedy from AKQA D.C., where they served as creative director and director of strategy, respectively. Golden (left) officially started on Dec. 1 at W+K’s Portland office as interactive CD on Procter & Gamble. Meanwhile, we’re still waiting on the exact title and start date for Miller-Sheehan, who spent two-and-a-half years at AKQA and spent time on the account/strategy side at Leo Burnett and BBDO prior.

As for Golden, who spent 11 years at AKQA, the creative won a Titanium at Cannes 2010 for the Volkswagen GTI launch, which sources say got her notice from the W+K camp. Her new boss, W+K’s global interactive ECD Iain Tait, says in a statement, “I’ve admired Ginny’s work from afar for ages. As soon as we met her we knew she’d be a great addition to the team. We’re all excited to see what she’s going to bring to W+K.”
