TBWA Welcomes Chief Diversity Officer, Loses Producer in LA

Here are couple of items from the TBWA camp that flew under the radar. Doug Melville (pictured) has joined the agency as chief diversity officer for North America. Prior to signing on with TBWA, Melville, who will be based in the New York office, was running his own company called Red Carpet Runway. During his career, he’s also served as a VP for Magic Johnson Enterprises.

And now, to the left coast. After five years as agency/integrated producer at TBWA\Chiat\Day LA, Jane Krull has packed her bags and headed to Chicago to join up with Leo Burnett as a producer. We’ve been told that Krull has joined the agency’s Team Sprint roster, though we’re still waiting for confirmation on that.

During her half-decade stint at Chiat LA, Krull served as producer on campaigns including PS3 “Universe of Entertainment,” which perhaps marked the agency’s last hurrah for Playstation before Sony decided to move the account to Deutsch LA. While at Chiat, Krull also produced efforts for Pepsi such as Will Arnett‘s odd, amusing “Super Bowl Party” from a few years ago.
