Clemans Out at Taxi NY

Well, a phone call to Taxi New York has confirmed that Dave Clemans, who joined the agency 15 months ago as executive creative director, is no longer with the agency. Word on the Spy line is that the Clemans was let go by Taxi NY this week. Clemans joined WPP-owned Taxi from CHI & Partners’ New York office, where he spent two-and-a-half years and served as ECD for clients including Best Buy, Samsung and Virgin.

During his career, Clemans had two stints at CP+B, leading creative on projects for VW including “Safe Happens” and playing a role in campaigns for Burger King and VW. While at Taxi, he led creative on work for Applegate and MiO.

Crispin/CHI Alum Clemans Heads to Taxi

This was originally set for Morning Stir, but perhaps this merits a longer post, especially since the last time we covered an ECD joining Taxi New York was nearly three years ago when the agency brought on Ron Smrczek (who has since headed to Taxi Europe to serve as ECD).

Anyhow, Dave Clemans, who could use a LinkedIn update, has now joined the WPP agency‘s New York office as executive creative director. Clemans arrives from CHI&Partners NY, where he held the same title and worked on Best Buy, Samsung and Virgin. Prior to that, Clemans was a creative director at CP+B (two stints, in fact) on Burger King Germany, Holland and Poland and also led creative on the VW “Safe Happens” campaign. During his first time out at Crispin, he was a key member of the team that created the “Truth” work.

Clemans’ new boss, Taxi Worldwide CCO Steve Mykolyn, sings his new hire’s praises in a statement (what else would you expect?), saying, “Dave is a proven big thinker. Put him in a room with a big problem and you know he’ll come up with an idea that hasn’t been thought of before.  That’s why he’s a perfect fit for TAXI.”
