Menno Kluin Out at DDB (Updated: Kluin Joins Deutsch NY)

MattmennoA phone call has confirmed that Menno Kluin is no longer with DDB New York, which he joined nearly three years ago as ECD/head of art. Kluin’s arrival at DDB NY marked one of said office’s then newly christened CCO Matt Eastwood‘s first notable hires (Eastwood and Kluin pictured l-r). Kluin joined DDB after spending three years at Y&R, serving in a similar role as CD/head of art and putting out efforts such as this. During his career, the creative exec also served as an award-winning art director at Saatchi & Saatchi. No word on where he’s headed to next but we’ll fill in the blanks if and when we find out.

Update: Well, there you go. Deutsch New York has hired Kluin as ECD/head of art & design. Menno starts Tuesday, January 21.  He will be reporting to CCO Kerry Keenan.
