ECD Michael Canning Leaves Leo Burnett

Michael CanningThis morning we learned that EVP/ECD Michael Canning is no longer with Leo Burnett New York.

Canning spent four years at the agency’s Manhattan office after he and his creative partner Kieran Antill were recruited from its operations in their native Australia by global Chief Creative Officer Mark Tutssel in 2011. The two helped build Leo Burnett New York alongside Jay Benjamin (who recently moved to Saatchi & Saatchi and made news this week for shuffling the creative deck there).

Canning has more than a decade of agency experience under his belt, writing copy for Lowe Hunt and BMF before moving to Leo Burnett Sydney. He has also been a keynote speaker/judge at several festivals in addition to taking home 39 Cannes Lions to date.
