Dugan, Arnold Part Ways

Basically two years to the day that he joined Arnold’s Boston office in a new position called chief commercial officer, Dave Dugan has left the agency according to those in the know. Here’s a quick statement from an agency spokesperson: “”We wish Dave great success and look forward to working with him on innovative marketing platforms for our clients. We are using this opportunity to clarify our management structure and responsibilities, and will communicate the plan shortly.”

Dugan joined Arnold after spending time at the likes of Digitas and BzzAgent, and was tasked at his most recent gig with building “out current capabilities and identify opportunities to build new lines of business.” In addition Dugan worked on Arnold services including CRM, social, mobile and new biz efforts.

From what we’re hearing on the Spy line, Dugan is taking a position at the almighty social network that is Facebook. No confirmation yet, but we’re checking in and will keep you posted. From what the Arnold camp tells us, meanwhile, his position will not be replaced.

Arnold Creates, Fills New Post Called Chief Commercial Officer

Ah, gotta love the ever-evolving titles that ad agencies come up with and Arnold Worldwide continues the trend by adding Digitas alum Dave Dugan as something called chief commercial officer. If you need to know what that is, this different kind of CCO is tasked with this: “Build out current capabilities and identify opportunities to build new lines of business,” work on other agency core services including CRM, social and mobile and help clients grow their business.

Now that we got that out of the way, Dugan, who will officially assume his post at Arnold on October 17, spent a dozen years at Digitas (two related posts in a day, you say?) and last served as SVP, corporate strategy until leaving to take on the role of president in 2008 at Boston-based, WOM/social marketing shop BzzAgent.
