BBDO ATL Vet Heads to VA-Based Digital Shop

After 18+ years at BBDO Atlanta, Kyle Lewis has finally left its clutches and headed up north to take on the executive creative director post at Modea, an “advertising agency with digital roots” that’s based in Blacksburg, Virginia.

During his nearly two-decade run at BBDO’s ATL office, Lewis, who last served as SVP/creative director at the agency, worked on campaigns for the likes of AT&T, Capital One, Dell, Delta and Wachovia. Two years ago while at BBDO, Lewis, along with then-fellow senior creatives Bill Pauls and Bobby Pearce, briefly took over the CCO responsibilities of Marcus Kemp, who was let go (Pearce eventually assumed the role of CCO).

Anyhow, now at Modea, which has a headcount of 83 at present time, Lewis will assume the standard ECD duties and help add new clients to a roster that currently includes Chiquita and HTC.

Bill Pauls Named CD at SapientNitro Atlanta

Bill Pauls, the 20-year agency vet who may or may not have been let go by BBDO Atlanta in June, is traveling elsewhere in the 404, finally landing a new gig as a CD at SapientNitro. Along with CD partner John McHale, Pauls will help oversee digital and traditional integration of clients Cigna, Michelin, and Coca-Cola’s sponsorship of the 2012 Olympics at SN’s Atlanta office.

During Pauls’ 10-year residence with BBDO, he rose through the ranks from group creative director to ECD and eventually helped take on fired BBDO Atlanta CCO’s Marcus Kemp‘s duties for a short while. Famous for Cingular Wireless’s  “Raising the Bar” slogan, Pauls has earned included Cannes Lions, Emmys and Gold Effies. Prior to BBDO, Pauls was a CD at JWT Atlanta.

While we still don’t know what exactly transpired that led to his exit from BBDO, perhaps we can learn something from Pauls’ statement regarding his new post, in which he says, “When you have the chance to throw out the old playbook and write a new one, it’s a pretty exciting spot to be in.”
