More Dentsu News? More Dentsu News…This Time Concerning a CCO

Who would’ve thunk we’d have two Dentsu items back-to-back in one day, but before you release the hounds, let us tell you that the agency’s U.S. network has a new chief creative officer in Brian McDermott, who, conveniently enough, happened to serve as MD/ECD at Dentsu-owned McGarryBowen. During his time at McGB, McDermott worked on accounts including Chase, Marriott and Sharp and prior to joining said agency, he worked at familiar agencies including BBDO, McCann Erickson and Y&R. Now as CCO, McDermott will take on accounts including that of an aforementioned automaker from Japan.

As a side note, we’ve been told by those who know that McDermott was also a guitarist in McCann NY’s Advertising-Week-Battle-of- the Band-winning band, “More F**king Cowbell”.
