CP+B Appoints New MDs in Boulder, Miami

cpbwhalen1It’s been a busy day it seems at camp Crispin as the MDC-owned agency has promoted two of its veteran staffers to role of managing director in separate offices. In Boulder, 10-year vet Danielle Whalen, who most recently served as EVP/group account director on ¬†Applebee’s and Fruit of the Loom, has assumed the MD role. Whalen originally joined CP+B in 1999 as an account manager supervisor, but left two years later and then rejoined the agency in ’04 to help lead the Burger King business. During that heyday, the agency produced such efforts as, yes, Subservient Chicken and subsequently award-winning campaigns like Whopper Freakout. In addition to BK, Whalen has also worked on Old Navy.

Joining Whalen in MD status is Carter Nance, a fellow EVP/group account director who’s been with CP+B since 1999 who currently oversees Domino’s and VitaminWater and will now take on the new role in the Miami office.

We’ve been told these are new positions and as a result of the move, CP+B fills out its MD posts in Boulder, Miami and L.A., the last of which has been assumed by Mason Reed since spring 2012. With the goal being to move to “a more decentralized structure,”¬† CP+B president Steve Erich says, “Danielle, Carter and Mason are three amazingly strong account leaders who all started in the Miami office over ten years ago, fully embody the beliefs of CP+B and understand the power of great creative product. They will work with their individual offices, as well as the collective agency, to drive our client businesses and the performance of CP+B.”

Waiting for the Bus and Need to Charge? Vitaminwater Can Help

Waiting for the damn bus can be a pain and a potential drain on your mobile device battery, but CP+B, under the creative direction of Ari Merkin, is trying to give the latter a boost as part of its “You’re Up” campaign for Vitaminwater. The parties have installed a 5-volt battery-powered USB port within a display ad in select bus shelters in NYC, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston that lets you charge your USB-compatible mobile, gaming device or MP3 player. The above pic, which was taken at the Chicago unit, shows you everything you need to know and the tagline itself seems fitting enough, but we’re still not sure if it makes being stuck at the bus stop more worth it.

The Budweiser Frogs Were Never this Jumpy

Has it already been a week since CP+B and VitaminWater became more intimate (no AOR)? My, how time flies, but here’s the second advert in the “You’re Up” campaign for the Coke brand called “Frog.” According to the credits, this spot was created under the leadership of ECD Ari Merkin and even involves the services of a “cognitive anthropologist.” Very ambitious, indeed. See full credits after the jump.
