RAPP Welcomes New Creative Leadership

And in as the world turns news, a week after we reported that Marty Cooke left the agency now known as RAPP, word come through that husband/wife team Wayne and Kim Pick were named executive creative directors of its New York office.The Picks have transferred from RAPP’s New Zealand branch, which handled accounts such as Adidas, VW, Häagen Dazs, Hewlett-Packard, Olay, McDonald’s and Nike, among others.

 

Yep, Marty Cooke Did Leave RAPP

As his LinkedIn attests, Marty Cooke is going solo after nearly 30 years of toiling within the walls of agencies ranging from Chiat\Day to DDB to SS+K. Cooke, who has spent the last two years, give or take, as U.S. chief creative officer at RAPP, is “…going to be working out of an office in Soho” and “will be launching a line of architect-designed furniture, working on several issues and developing my own line of design products.”

Prior to joining RAPP, Cooke spent 10 years at the aforementioned SS+K, where he last served as CCO, and enjoyed an eight-year run as a creative director in various Chiat offices before that. We’ve been told Cooke’s last official day at RAPP was this past Friday. We’re checking to see if the agency is actively searching for his replacement or already has one in mind. We’ll keep you posted.

Kash Sree Takes CCO Post at SS+K

SS+K has announced that Kash Sree will take on the chief creative officer role at the agency effective tomorrow, Feb. 1. Sree, who will also become the CAA part-owned agency’s seventh partner, did a little agency-hopping back in ’09 if you recall, when he resigned from JWT, dabbled in freelance then eventually signed on as ECD at Pereira & O’Dell.

During his time at the latter shop, Sree worked on accounts including Corona and Lego (check out his most recent work for the latter brand, “Brick Thief,” here). Prior to P&O’D, the London native held top creative posts at BBH and the aforementioned JWT and also had a five-year run at Wieden+Kennedy Portland. During his time at W+K, Sree picked up a Cannes Grand Prix and an Emmy, respectively, for his work on the Nike “Play” and “Move” campaigns. In a statement, the 20-year ad vet, who began his career as a junior AD at Ogilvy London, says of his new employer, “SS+K has always been about engaging people socially at many levels and that opens up fantastic opportunities to creative people like me as well as to clients.” Sree replaces SS+K’s former CCO Marty Cooke, who left last August for RAPP.
