Here’s a Quick Update on a Few Arnold Creatives

johnkearseAnd now, in more staffing news, we have received word from sources in the know that Arnold Worldwide and a couple of creative staffers have parted ways, mainly John Kearse and Rob Kottkamp, who we’ve been told are joining up with Mullen within the next couple of weeks. During his eight-year stint at Arnold, Kottkamp moved up the ranks from art director to senior AD to his most recent role as SVP/creative director, working on, among other things, under Pete Johnson on Carnival. Johnson remains executive creative director on said account. As for Kearse, the creative has spent nearly a decade at Arnold, helping lead creative on truth and Santander among other accounts. No word yet on SVP/creative director Mike Howard, but we’re hearing a change to freelance status at Arnold is in the works.
