Karlsson Headed to McCann After All

Well, at least we sort of scooped AdAge on this yesterday. But after giving us a solid NO when we inquired, McCann indeed announced to staff at an internal meeting this afternoon that Linus Karlsson is joining the agency and will lead creative in both New York and London, effective February 2011. My, how quickly things change. Karlsson as we know suddenly left Mother and now we know that the CCO/chairman was probably too big to pass up. With McCann and Euro RSCG taken care of, who’s next to fill their vacant top creative post?
