Ciampa Lands at Cibo

cibo_headshot_keith

All of a sudden, San Francisco-based digital agency Cibo has been flooding our radar as the shop has now welcomed Keith Ciampa to the fold to serve in the newly created role of chief creative officer. In case you didn’t know, last we heard Ciampa’s name, the senior creative was no longer holding the ECD post at Tribal SF back in 2012 after spending just eight months at the agency. During his brief stint at Tribal SF, where he replaced Tony Cordero at the time, Ciampa led new biz wins for Dolby and Intel among other accounts. Prior to his brief stay at Tribal, Ciampa held two-year creative director posts at both Goodby and McKinney, where he worked on accounts including Yahoo and Virgin Atlantic, respectively.

Yes, we have the obligatory statement from Cibo co-founder/CEO, Lu Lacourte, who says about Ciampa, “He’s a unique and special talent and a perfect fit for what Cibo is focused on. He has a magic touch when it comes to combining brand narratives with robust usability expertise across both digital and traditional. The guy’s a rock star and we’re thrilled to have him.”

Ciampa Out at Tribal DDB

A phone call has confirmed that Tribal DDB San Francisco ECD Keith Ciampa is no longer with the agency. Tipsters are saying that Tribal parted ways with the senior creative last week. Ciampa joined the network’s Bay Area branch just eight months ago from Goodby, taking over for Tony Cordero and leading creative for Tribal SF clients including Clorox, Intel and Microsoft as well as this nifty holiday-themed iPhone app.

During his two-year stint at GS&P, Ciampa served as interactive creative director on Sprint and Yahoo among other accounts. Prior to Goodby, he served as a creative director at McKinney. No word yet from the Tribal SF camp on replacement plans.

 

Did You Know Tony Cordero Was Out at Tribal DDB SF?

Well, now you know. We’ve received confirmation that Tony Cordero (pictured), who joined as executive creative director at Tribal DDB San Francisco, is no longer with the agency. Cordero split from Tribal’s Chicago office and headed to the network’s Bay Area branch back in December 2008 and subsequently oversaw creative across the agency’s client roster that includes/included Clorox, McAfee and SunPower. During his five-year stint at Tribal DDB’s Windy City locale, Cordero led client work for the likes of Anne Klein, LensCrafters and Nine West.

We’ve been told that Cordero has been replaced by Keith Ciampa, who previously served as a creative director at Goodby and worked on campaigns for Yahoo among others.
