R/GA Officially Welcomes Chris Bradley

OK, folks, the saga is over and R/GA has finally rolled out a full-fledged announce confirming that former Big Fuel executive creative director Chris Bradley has joined the agency for the digital age as ECD on the MasterCard account. Along with providing a better photo of the man (which shows he might bear a slight resemblance to Gary Oldman), we might as well also shed some light on his days at Big Fuel. During his brief stay at the social media agency, Bradley worked on initiatives across BF’s past and present clients including GM, T-Mobile, Microsoft, Philips and Chevy (he oversaw the “Chevy Camaro 2 Million” Facebook campaign, for example).

Prior to Big Fuel, as we previously mentioned, Bradley spent time as a senior creative at agencies including Ogilvy’s New York and San Francisco offices, serving as senior partner/GCD on Motorola and Stoli among other accounts at the latter branch. From what sources familiar with the matter tell us, Bradley will assume his post at R/GA on Jan. 24.

H/T to the tipsters, as always.

We Hear: Suarez, Gonzalez Leave Chiat NY for BFG9000?

Like Chris Bradley‘s status at R/GA, things are murky at this point but sources are telling us that TBWA\Chiat\Day NY senior creative team David Suarez (art director) and Danny Gonzalez (copywriter) have left for gigs at Gerry Graf‘s fellow New York-based operation, BFG9000. We’ve been told the pair had only been at Chiat for 11 months, give or take. Prior to that, Suarez and Gonzalez held their respective AD and CW posts at JWT New York on campaigns for Huggies (remember this from a year ago?) among others. As always, we’ll let you know when we know, but from what we hear, the pair starts at BFG this week.

Update: Gerry Graf has confirmed to us that Gonzalez and Suarez are joining BFG9000 next week.

We Hear: Chris Bradley Heading to R/GA?

Since our post last Friday about now-former Big Fuel ECD Chris Bradley, who left the agency after just 11 months, a handful of spies have emerged from the shadows to tell us that he’s heading to R/GA. The “agency for the digital age” has yet to confirm Bradley’s arrival, though we’re hearing that he’ll assume a similar title at its New York HQ. While we continue prodding and poking R/GA for some clarification on the matter, we’ll remind you that Bradley also held lengthy, high-level creative posts at the likes of Arnold and Ogilvy during his career.

Big Fuel ECD Splits

Sources familiar with the matter tell us that Chris Bradley, who’s spent the last 11 months as executive creative director at GM’s former social media AOR Big Fuel, has left the agency. From what we’ve been told, New York-based Bradley, who recently worked on this Christmas campaign for the Humane Society, left of his own volition. Prior to Big Fuel, Bradley spent half-decades at Arnold and Ogilvy, where he served as VP, creative director and senior partner, GCD, respectively. No word yet on where he’s headed to next, but we’ll let you know when we know.
