Media Kitchen Parts Ways with Pinkerton

pinkertonsmallDetails are somewhat vague at this point, but sources familiar with the matter confirm that Charles Pinkerton, who’s been with kbs+ and its media arm, Media Kitchen, for nearly a dozen years, is no longer with the agency. During his lengthy stay within the kbs+ fold, Pinkerton moved up from director of interactive media and marketing to partner/director of client services at Media Kitchen in 2006 to his most recent role as partner/director of communication insights at MK.

No word yet on if there are plans to replace Pinkerton, but during his career, the 25-year ad vet also worked as a planner at Campbell Mithun early on before serving in senior exec roles at the likes of Horizon, Ammirati Puris Lintas and The Martin Agency.
