ECD Carl Rogers Leaves Havas

Carl RogersToday we confirmed that Executive Creative Director Carl Rogers is no longer with Havas.

We have very little in the way of details at the moment, so we’ll recap:

Havas Discovery President Paul Marobella recruited Rogers in March of last year to run the newly-formed “digital/analytics/CRM arm” in Baltimore. He was quickly promoted to ECD at Havas Chicago and worked “across offices” from New York to Baltimore.

In his own words, he “directly managed in excess of 16 accounts and 75 creatives across 3 agencies” and helped win the DISH, Dos Equis and other accounts.

He also blogged.

Havas Brings the March Madness for DISH Network

Havas Worldwide Chicago has launched a new March Madness campaign for DISH Network featuring a new kangaroo mascot, which also marks Havas’ first campaign for the company since being named lead digital agency last summer.

The kangaroo mascot, voiced by Rebel Wilson, makes her debut in the TV spot “Mobile Basketball.” In the 30-second spot, the kangaroo shows off the DISH Network’s capabilities by watching college basketball at work, only pretending to be engaged in actual work when the boss walks by. While the spot never quite hits the humorous mark it’s aiming for, it’s still world’s ahead of the campaign’s painful digital spot, “Fight Song.” As you might have guessed, the 30 second spot is built around a “fight song” for DISH Network (in the style of college team’s fight songs) extolling the Network’s ability to let you watch March Madness games anywhere. “Fight Song” will run on sites like ESPN.com, where it will most likely be muted after approximately 1.2 seconds. Havas’s campaign also includes social media activations on Facebook and Twitter featuring the new mascot. Stick around for credits after the jump. Read more

Rogers Joins Up with Havas Discovery

We’ve received confirmation that Carl Rogers has assumed the role of executive creative director at what is now Havas Discovery, the digital/analytics/CRM arm of Havas Worldwide. Last we recall, Rogers parted ways with Grey New York, where he last served as VP/creative on the Pantene business, a year ago. Unlike what tipsters are saying, though, Rogers joining Havas Discovery was not the handiwork of the agency’s Chicago CCO, Jason Peterson, but rather Paul Marobella, president of Havas Discovery.From what we’re hearing, British native Rogers is working across offices ranging from Chicago to Baltimore.

During his career, the creative has also served as copywriter/CD at the likes of Critical Mass, StrawberryFrog and Dentsu Amsterdam.

Carl Rogers Leaves Grey

After spending just a year as VP, creative director at Grey New York, Carl Rogers is leaving the agency and heading back to his native UK. Rogers, whose last day at Grey happens to be today, served as a global digital CD on Pantene and also worked on accounts including Ketel One, Olive Garden and Pringles during his brief stint.

Prior to Grey, Rogers spent two years across the pond as creative director and head of copy at Critical Mass Europe, leading global digital communications for Rolex, Gucci, Adidas and P&G brands. During his career, he’s served as lead copywriter at Dentsu Amsterdam and StrawberryFrog. From what we’ve been told, Rogers has nothing concrete set but will be interviewing for a few ECD positions on his home turf.
