Here Are a Couple of Notes on Tribal NY

joshtribalLet’s start the party by addressing Tribal Worldwide’s New York office and its relationship with eyecare brand Alcon, which a few tipsters have brought up. Here’s what we hear: sources familiar with the matter tell us that the agency-client relationship varies from year-to-year. Tribal has been working with Alcon for the past five and it looks like the partnership will continue in 2014 “and beyond”–though in what terms, we’re not sure. Tribal deferred all official comment to Alcon, which we’re checking with.

Switching Tribal topics, said agency’s NY office has also bumped up Josh McGuire and Hunter Simms to creative directors. During his career, which has basically consisted of time at Tribal NY, McGuire (pictured) moved up the ranks from art director to senior AD to his most recent post. As for Simms, the new DDB NY CD previously served as senior writer at JWT Dubai for clients including Kleenex, Band-Aid, Wendy’s, Audi, Nokia and more.
