And so, BBDO New York’s search for a director of creative resources will continue as we’ve received confirmation that Sarah Park, who joined the agency just a few months ago, has decided to move on. Park (pictured, looking somewhat fierce/serious) took over the creative resources reins at BBDO NY for Anne Saulnier, who left in April after spending just a year at the agency. Anyhow, those in the know tell us that the BBDO New York camp is figuring out options to replace Park, including from within. Prior to joining said agency, Park spent nearly nine years in the creative talent/recruiting department at Wieden + Kennedy New York.

Sources familiar with the matter confirm that after just over a year as SVP, director of creative operations at BBDO New York, Anne Saulnier is no longer at the agency. Saulnier joined BBDO from Publicis & Hal Riney, where she spent nearly 15 years in a similar role. Tipsters say she was let go, adding, “The creative department is completely surprised and can’t figure out why — they’re all saying, ‘But she was good.’”
During her career, Saulnier has worked on the account/management side at the likes of W+K, N.W. Ayer and DDB.
Just over a year after assuming the EVP/chief strategy officer title at McCann Erickson West, Matt Herrmann is on the move again, this time to BBDO San Francisco, where he’ll take on the post of EVP, director of behavioral planning.Though he’s had stints at BBH New York and Cliff Freeman & Partners (RIP) during his career, Herrmann (left) spent a good chunk of it (five years, give or take) at Goodby as deputy director, brand strategy.
Meanwhile, Herrmann’s new counterpart in BBDO’s Atlanta office will be Catrina McAuliffe, a former planning director at agencies including Chiat\Day San Francisco and Carmichael Lynch. Both Herrmann and McAullife mark the first hires made by BBDO North America director of planning Paul Matheson, who joined up with the agency from O&M Asia Pacific last November.
