Saatchi & Saatchi finally has a new chief marketing officer.
The agency announced the appointment of Christine Prins to the position of chief marketing officer today, Adweek reports. Prins fills the role, which has been vacant since Ben Bittman left the agency in 2010. She arrives from KBS+, where she has worked in business development since 2008, most recently serving as chief growth officer. Prior to KBS+ she spent almost two years working in business development at Publicis.
Prins joins a management team including fresh arrivals CCO Jay Benjamin (who arrived in April) and CSO Wanda Pogue (July). Some of Saatchi & Saatchi’s biggest accounts include General Mills, Procter & Gamble and Walmart, and the agency recently added Heineken’s Tecate beer and Vita Coco to its roster.
