Haan Succeeds Kroening as ECD at BBDO Proximity Minneapolis

noelhaanBBDO Proximity Minneapolis has found a new executive creative director in veteran Chicago creative Noel Haan, who’s spent the last two years as an ECD heading up global creative for SC Johnson while at Ogilvy’s Windy City office. Haan succeeds longtime Minneapolis creative Brian Kroening, who’s spent the last several years as SVP/ECD at BBDO but has “left to pursue other interests.” This marks Haan’s second stint within the fold, as he originally spent a few years as GCD on Jim Beam among other clients while at Energy BBDO.  Says the new BBDO Minneapolis ECD in a statement, “I am very excited to be reunited with [BBDO North American CCO/chairman] David Lubars and to be coming back to a BBDO agency with so much positive momentum.  BBDO Minneapolis has been around for 80 years.  It’s my job to make the next decade just as memorable,”

BBDO’s Twin Cities operation currently works with a client roster including Skippy Peanut Butter, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices and Hormel.
