Leo Burnett USA welcomed Susan Treacy as SVP/CD where she’ll lead creative and strategic initiatives for the Hallmark business and other brands.

The 16-year ad vet, whose efforts have earned Cannes Lions, Effies and One Show awards along the way, has also judged New York ADCs, The Andys and has taught at the Miami Ad School.

Speaking of Leo, global PR director Abby Lovett announced that she’s leaving the agency after five years to pursue a consumer PR role at Weber Shandwick, though she’ll still remain in Chicago.
