Rossiter Out at Leo Burnett

Sources familiar with the matter confirm that Chris Rossiter, who served as EVP, executive director of production at Leo Burnett, is no longer with the agency. We haven’t received word on whose decision it was to part ways, but spies tell us that it was Leo that pulled the trigger. Anyhow, Rossiter spent the last seven years overseeing Leo Burnett USA’s production department (as well as its in-house Music Aid studio) from the agency’s Chicago hub, where he worked on campaigns for the likes of Kellogg’s Pop Tarts and Tampax.

‘Team Sprint’ Debuts First Work, Starring Kevin Durant

Nearly three months after picking up the baton for the wireless carrier from GS&P, “Team Sprint”–aka Digitas and Leo Burnett–have created their first work for the brand. In case you didn’t catch it during NBA All-Star weekend, the spot starred West starter/scoring machine Kevin Durant, the mobile game “Doodle Jump” and highlighted Sprint’s unlimited data plan. We already think the Durantula is a better actor than Shaq. Credits below:
