It appears that Mark Pollard will continue to call New York home for the time being as the Aussie native has moved from Saatchi & Saatchi to Brooklyn’s Big Spaceship. Pollard spent just nine months at Saatchi NY, though he did carry the fancy title of VP, director of planning innovation. Now at the Spaceship, he has assumed the role of VP of brand strategy.
Most interestingly to music lovers and former mag publishers like yours truly, Pollard was the CEO of hip-hop pub Stealth for 14 years, a role he maintained while working on the strategy side at the likes of McCann Sydney and Leo Burnett during his career. Pollard assumes his new post at Big Spaceship effective immediately and will call the shop’s COO Alasdair Lloyd-Jones his new boss.
