Hmm, So Detweiler Lands at Arnold After All?

We first heard about this at the beginning of July and at the time, the Arnold camp couldn’t confirm that Curt Detweiler had assumed a senior-level post at the Havas-owned agency. Well, what do we have here, it appears that Detweiler has updated his LinkedIn to show that he’s now EVP/managing director/ECD at Arnold Worldwide. It doesn’t seem too far-fetched considering that Arnold’s global CEO is Robert LePlae, who in 2009 while serving as McCann North America president, brought on Detweiler as the agency’s North American creative chief.

LePlae eventually split from McCann in fall 2011 and landed at Arnold a year ago to initially assume the role of global president. As for Detweiler, the creative exec remains based out of San Francisco it appears. We’re trying to get  confirmation on his arrival and specifics such as his start date from Arnold, but as you may know, Detweiler spent several years as a creative director at various TBWA offices and served as partner/ECD at the now-defunct Ground Zero before joining McCann.
