Kash Sree Takes CCO Post at SS+K

SS+K has announced that Kash Sree will take on the chief creative officer role at the agency effective tomorrow, Feb. 1. Sree, who will also become the CAA part-owned agency’s seventh partner, did a little agency-hopping back in ’09 if you recall, when he resigned from JWT, dabbled in freelance then eventually signed on as ECD at Pereira & O’Dell.

During his time at the latter shop, Sree worked on accounts including Corona and Lego (check out his most recent work for the latter brand, “Brick Thief,” here). Prior to P&O’D, the London native held top creative posts at BBH and the aforementioned JWT and also had a five-year run at Wieden+Kennedy Portland. During his time at W+K, Sree picked up a Cannes Grand Prix and an Emmy, respectively, for his work on the Nike “Play” and “Move” campaigns. In a statement, the 20-year ad vet, who began his career as a junior AD at Ogilvy London, says of his new employer, “SS+K has always been about engaging people socially at many levels and that opens up fantastic opportunities to creative people like me as well as to clients.” Sree replaces SS+K’s former CCO Marty Cooke, who left last August for RAPP.
