Russell Takes ECD Post at GSD&M

A lot of happenings to report at the Austin-based, Omnicom-owned GSD&M, which has confirmed that Jay Russell has been appointed as executive creative director at the agency. From what one tipster tells us, “They finally got it right.”In addition to the promotion of Russell, who rejoined GSD&M after a stint at CP+B, the former has promoted Marianne Malina (welcome back) to president, will have Betty Pat McCoy and Carmen Graf to lead the media department and name Jeanne Crockett as SVP/operations.

During his first stint at the TX-based GSD&M, Russell eventually moved up to group creative director on the now-defunct BMW biz. The new creative boss will take over for Mike Wilson, who was ousted from GSD&M nearly 18 months ago.
