CP+B Makes Some Management Moves

steveerich1Crispin Porter + Bogusky is making some management shifts at the dawn of 2014. Among the moves the Boulder-based, MDC-owned agency is the promotion of 10-year vet Steve Erich to president. In addition to Erich (pictured), who most recently served as partner/managing director at CP+B, the agency has also appointed Mike Saunter, a Warner Music/EMI alum, to chief operating officer while also moving one of its four original partners, Jeff Steinhour,  to the role of vice-chairman.

As for new prez Erich, after joining CP+B in 2004 to help relaunch the Burger King biz, the exec moved up the ladder to partner in 2008 and subsequently was appointed managing director two years ago. CP+B CEO Andrew Keller says in a statement, “Steve is a rare combination of incredible intelligence, reliability and great market knowledge with a proven ability to lead, unify and inspire both his team and our clients. Mike’s financial expertise and his experience in the music industry, a creative industry that is overflowing with opportunities yet in the midst of profound changes – as is our industry, will be invaluable to us. And Jeff is a key to continuing our culture, what makes us great and what continues to be the heartbeat of CP+B.”

Keller Takes CEO Post at CP+B

More Crispin news? Yes, more Crispin news, and this one’s fairly big as the agency’s longtime co-CCO Andrew Keller has been promoted to CEO of CP+B. But Keller isn’t the only one probably busting open a bottle of bubbly as his cohort Rob Reilly has been bumped up worldwide chief creative officer, while Jeff Steinhour was promoted to president and Jeff Hicks was elevated to vice chairman at the MDC-owned firm.

In a statement, Keller, who has been with Crispin for 12 years and counting, seems optimistic, saying, ““It’s impossible to know what the advertising industry will be like in 10 years, but you can be sure CP+B will be at the forefront of it, making brands outrageously successful by any means possible.”
