None of the three have been with Translation for more than a few months: Peyron, a former account leader at McCann and Ogilvy, joined in February and earned an Adweek writeup in the process; he filled a post that had been vacant since November 2012. At the same time, the agency hired former top Chiat creative John Norman to fill the CCO role. Norman then facilitated the hiring of Berry and d’Avignon, who had worked with him at W+K Portland from 2005 to 2008.
Translation produced a couple of spots for Champs Sports this summer, and all three of the names in question appear in the credits.
We did not receive a confirmation or statement from the agency, but we did score a “no comment…”
