Mike Wilson Lands at Arnold

Hey, look who’s back. After GSD&M “parted ways” with him at the beginning of the year, Mike Wilson has resurfaced at Arnold Worldwide, where he will take on the title of EVP/group creative director on Dell and other global clients.

As you may remember, Wilson held on to the CCO post at GSD&M for, shall we say, a brief period of time, working on new business as well as AT&T, Southwest and the U.S. Air Force. Prior to that, Wilson held the same title at Dentsu for two-and-a-half years, where he reportedly helped double the agency’s size and revenue. During his career, Wilson also served as senior partner, worldwide GCD at O&M and managed the AmEx Blue, DHL and Kodak accounts. Now, as a result of joining Arnold, Wilson will reunite with (and report to) Pete Favat, managing partner/CCO at the Boston office, who says in a statement, “We produced some great work during the three years we spent together at Houston Herstek Favat. He is the right cultural fit for Arnold, and I’m looking forward to picking up where we left off.”
