This little tidbit trickled into the tips box over the weekend and now, sources familiar with the matter confirm that Brian Nienhaus, who’s spent the last year as SVP/account management and Team Sprint relationship lead at DigitasLBi Chicago, will soon be leaving his post. From what we’ve been told by sources, Nienhaus is going to “explore other [opportunities] within agency and the broader holding company.”
As a result, he’ll be succeeded come mid-November by Davin Power, who has served as EVP/global client services director for nearly two years on SC Johnson at fellow Chicago-based agency, Energy BBDO. Power, a 20-year ad vet, has had fairly lengthy stints on the account management side at the likes of O&M New York, Havas Worldwide NY and Grey prior to joining . As for Nienhaus, the account exec had similar roles at similar notable agencies including Y&R, JWT, Grey SF and Cramer-Krasselt during his 25-year career.
