Some News from Above: Kugler Secedes from Union, Heads to BBDO; Tribal Canada Welcomes VP, Strategy

Let’s kill two birds this morning with some news from up north, especially considering they’re both Omnicom agencies. First off, we’ve received confirmation that Gerald Kugler, who’s spent the last few years as an ACD at what was formerly known as CP+B Toronto and what is now Union, has left the agency and joined up with BBDO Toronto. Kugler, who can be seen talking shop here, officially joined BBDO last week and is working across various agency accounts.

Next up to bat is Tribal DDB Canada, which has now welcomed Dino Demopoulos as VP, strategy and innovation. While Demopoulos’s agency credits include the head of strategy title at MacLaren/MRM as well as planning/strategy stints at TBWA\MAL and BBDO/Proximity, perhaps more interesting to note is that the exec is a DJ/producer who also owns an indie label called Crash Records. How that plays into the Tribal mix, though, we have no idea, but Demopolous has worked with brands including Ford, General Motors, HP, Pepsi, Quaker, Sears and Tropicana during his career.
