Jelleyman to Take Over as TAXI CCO

In other Canadian agency-related news, Frazer Jelleyman, who last we heard left his ECD post at what was David&Goliath’s London branch, has resurfaced over two years later to take on the global chief creative officer role at TAXI. As a result of the move, which actually won’t take effect until Jan 3, 2013, current CCO Steve Mykolyn will shift over to the role of chief brand officer at TAXI. What does the latter’s new role entail, you ask? Well, Mykolyn will focus on honing the agency’s digital and social outreach and “amplifying” its “Doubt” philosophy (let TAXI co-founder Paul Lavoie explain what that is).

As for the incoming CCO, Jelleyman (pictured left) will be based in TAXI’s Toronto office once he assumes his post next year. Prior to his brief ECD stint at D&G, the creative exec spent nine years as CD/head of art at TBWA\London and had a decade-long stint as an art director a DDB London before that. In other TAXI-related news, Lance Martin, who we mentioned, oh, about 30 minutes ago in the Union post, will be vacating his ECD post at TAXI 2 effective Nov. 30. The 12-year vet will be replaced by Darren Clarke in the interim.
